The Rogers State University Music Program is partnering with the Claremore Symphony League to host a March 15 concert by the Tulsa Symphony Brass Quintet and Woodwind Quintet.

The concert begins at 7 p.m., Saturday, March 15 in the Will Rogers Auditorium on the RSU campus in Claremore.

RSU Band Director Dr. Kirk Weller said the concert promises to be exciting with both classical music and modern movie themes on the program.

There will be a "meet and greet" reception following the concert in the Foundations Art Gallery in Baird Hall where audience members can meet performers and enjoy some light refreshments.

Tickets are available at the door for a $5 minimum donation. Patrons of the Symphony League and students with ID are free.

The Claremore Symphony League is a charitable organization with its sole mission to raise funds to support music education and performance in Rogers County and the surrounding area.

In addition to bringing ensembles from the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra to Claremore, the League offers Master Classes to area band students to better prepare them for honor band auditions, provides grants to area public school music teachers and helps fund the Claremore High School Musical Theatre program.
