Saturday's performance will feature works by Strauss, Beethoven, and Maxwell Davies, which will feature a unique bagpipe solo.
David Harman, professor of music and director of orchestral activities at the University, will conduct the Symphony Orchestra. In addition to bachelor's and master's degrees from California State University at Sacramento, Harman earned a doctor of musical arts from the Eastman School of Music.
