The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Symphony Orchestra will present a free concert Wednesday, Oct. 27, honoring the institution’s 150th year.

The performance is set for 7:30 p.m. in the Titan Underground of Reeve Union and will feature music by John Williams, Ottorino Respighi, Howard Hanson and Julius Eastman.

Dylan Chmura-Moore, associate professor of music, said the concert will feature “very old music that has been reimagined into something new; a metaphor for how we reimagine our campus and its mission every new year.”

In recognizing UW Oshkosh’s past, musicians will collaborate with representatives from the art department, LGBTQ+ Resource Center, Counseling Center and Wellness Center to engage with live art making—inspired by images from the University’s 150 years—and engage in topics centered around equity, social justice and mental health concerns.

Hakeem Davidson, clarinet; John Mayrose, guitar; and Drew Whiting, saxophone are faculty artists who will be featured in the concert.
