Concert: Bowdoin Chamber OrchestraThe New Bowdoin Chamber Orchestra will perform under the direction of Beckwith Artist in Residence George Lopez. For the first time in several years, the orchestra is made up almost entirely of Bowdoin students.

The program will include the joyous Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 by Johann Sebastian Bach; a work for winds by the same composer who wrote the opening theme for Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey; and Beethoven's most tragic set of theme and variations for orchestra, the Allegretto from his swashbuckling Symphony No. 7. The finale will feature music from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro.

The concert is open to the public and admission is free.
