Luther College's Philharmonia presents their orchestral program at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, in Luther's Center for Faith and Life Main Hall.

This event is open to the public with no charge for admission.

The Luther College Philharmonia is symphonic ensemble that performs regularly on campus in concert under the direction of Luther faculty member Spencer Martin.

The program includes Händel's "Suite in D Major," featuring Luther faculty member John Cord on piccolo trumpet. The concert's repertoire also includes "Masques et Bergamasques," by Gabriel Fauré, Overture from "Nabucco," by Giuseppe Verdi, and two movements from "Sigurd Jorsalfar," by Edvard Grieg.

Luther is home to one of the largest collegiate music programs in the nation, with five choirs, three orchestras, three bands, two jazz bands and more than 800 student musicians. Luther students participate in large ensembles, faculty-coached chamber groups, private lessons and master classes. Nearly 275 music majors study music theory, ear training, history, education, composition, jazz, church music and performance.
