Symphony Concert Sunday

best known concert overtures.

somewhat ragged but the or

brilliant style. Except for a dif

lins failed to follow the con

success and was well-acclaimed
by the audience.
The second number on the pro
gram was "Ballet Suite from Ce

and "Gigue." The number is

strong and moving music. The
orchestra did more than justice
to the difficult overture. Solo

Janice Liljedahl, cello, and Bon
