The Milligan Orchestra, under the direction of Professor of Music Dr. Kellie Brown, will present a fall concert featuring 500 years of rich and varied compositions by English and American composers. Works will encompass staples of the string orchestra repertoire, such as Charles Avison's "Concerto in G Minor" and Benjamin Britten's Simple Symphony, in addition to works drawn from literary characters such as Sherlock Holmes in 221B Baker Street and TV themes from Downton Abbey and Young Frankenstein. Senior vocal education major Grant Coakley will perform Purcell's ethereal An Evening Hymn, and one of the college's premier a cappella groups, Heritage, will perform a rollicking set of English madrigals with the orchestra. In addition, Milligan Librarian Mary Jackson will make her debut playing the typewriter in a performance of Leroy Anderson's classic, The Typewriter.
