PULLMAN — The WSU Symphonic Orchestra will perform at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29, in the Bryan Hall Theatre.
 
The orchestra, conducted by Ruth Boden, will perform pieces from Rossini, Sir Edward Elgar and Franz Joseph Haydn.
 
Rossini’s “Barber of Seville” Overture has been delighting audiences for centuries, from the 1800s through Bugs Bunny to today.
 
Sir Edward Elgar’s “Enigma Variations” is one of his greatest compositions. Its lush orchestration and portrayals of his friends is a tour de force for orchestra and the audience is sure to recognize the “Nimrod” variation from Hollywood movies including Elizabeth and The Matrix.
 
Franz Joseph Haydn’s Symphony Number 104 is the last of the “London Symphonies” and Haydn’s final symphony. The exciting performance of this historic piece celebrates the 200th year of Haydn’s death.
 
The concert is free and open to the public.
