Pepperdine University's music ensembles begin their fall performances in October at Smothers Theatre. Please join us on October 19 when internationally acclaimed pianist, Rufus Choi, joins the University Orchestra for a performance of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 "Emperor." This concerto is filled with some of the noblest music ever written and Professor Choi's energy, technique, and extraordinary musical understanding will make this a memorable evening. Jean Sibelius' Symphony No 2 will complete the concert. The heroic first and final movements have made it his most popular symphony and triumphantly acclaimed as a masterpiece pointing in the same direction as the symphonies of Beethoven.
The Pepperdine University Orchestra performs a range of classical and contemporary repertoire providing students the opportunity to perform great orchestral music in a positive environment while striving for the highest standards of excellence in performance.
