KINGSVILLE (February 6, 2007) — The next concert of the Kingsville Symphony Orchestra (KSO), conducted by Dr. Mark Rogers and featuring students and faculty from Texas A&M University-Kingsville with local musicians, happens Sunday, Feb. 25, at 3 p.m. in Jones Auditorium, on the A&M-Kingsville campus.

Tickets are $30 for orchestra seating, $20 for mid-tier seating and $10 for students and senior citizens. A family discount price also is available. They can be purchased at the Kingsville Chamber of Commerce and at the A&M-Kingsville music department office, room 112 of the Bellamah Music Building.

Music to be performed by the KSO includes Cesar Franck’s “Symphony in D Minor” and excerpts from “Lohengrin” by Richard Wagner. Guest vocal soloists include Dr. Noel Archambeault, director of choral activities; Dr. Arikka Gregory, assistant professor of voice; Phil Boyum; Blake Smith; and Larry Purkey. Also performing will be members of the Texas A&M University-Kingsville Chorus.

The KSO started from an idea proposed by A&M-Kingsville music educators Dr. Nancy KingSanders, James Warth, Dr. Chris Carrillo, Bruce Schueneman and Dr. Yutaka Kono, along with his wife Kathleen Kono.

They brought the orchestra to fruition with the help of Kathy Martinez of the Kingsville Chamber of Commerce and Sandra Glover-Messbarger, who established the Kingsville Arts Council and is conductor and artistic director of the Kingsville Community Chorus.
