The Starkville Symphony Orchestra will hold a special fall concert Sept. 28 at the Mississippi University for Women in Columbus.
Sponsored by the Starkville-Mississippi State University Symphony Association and Columbus Arts Council, the 7:30 p.m. event will be held in the Rent Auditorium.
General admission tickets are $10 each; free to MUW and MSU employees and students with school-issued identifications.
The performance will include the world premiere of Richard Montalto's latest work, "Possum Town Prelude." A longtime Columbus resident and MUW faculty member, Montalto has had a distinguished career as both a composer and educator.
Julia Mortyakova, MUW music department head, joins the orchestra for Robert Schumann's "Fantasie for Piano and Orchestra."
The program's second half will feature Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 in C major.
Michael Brown, Starkville Symphony music director and MSU music department head, will conduct the programs.
