LAWRENCE - The University of Kansas Symphony Orchestra will present its first concert of the 2013-2014 season at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at the Lied Center of Kansas.

The concert, conducted by David Neely, KU director of orchestral activities, will begin with Verdi’s Sicilian Vespers overture followed by Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 1, featuring new assistant professor of violin, Véronique Mathieu. The concert concludes with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5.

“I am particularly excited about this upcoming concert,” said David Neely. “Our soloist is marvelous, the music is spectacular, and the students are working with a level of dedication that makes me proud to be a Jayhawk. You’ll not want to miss this performance.”
