For almost 40 years, the Johnson City Symphony Orchestra and Milligan College have collaborated to bring quality symphonic music to our region. In a joint concert, JCSO and the Milligan Orchestra will perform masterpieces of the string repertoire and celebrate the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven. The program will include John Rutter’s “Suite for Strings” and the “Adagio for Strings” by Albinoni. Guest organist, Dr. Joby Bell, will perform the Handel Organ Concerto No. 5 with the joint orchestra, under the baton of Milligan Orchestra director Dr. Kellie Brown. The second half of the program will celebrate the works of Beethoven with a performance of his Fifth Symphony, conducted by JCSO’s Dr. Robert Seebacher. Tickets are $35 for adults and $10 for students. Milligan faculty, staff, and students can attend for free. Tickets can be purchased in advance by contacting 423-92-MUSIC.

The Book of Ruth @ Milligan College Seeger Chapel, Mary B. Martin Auditorium
Apr 25 @ 7:30 pm

The Book of Ruth, an oratorio by Italian-American composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, will be performed by the Milligan Concert Choir and Orchestra in a world premiere performance.  Born to Jewish parents in 1895, he fled to the United States in 1939 after Italy adopted Mussolini’s discriminatory racial laws.  He composed this oratorio in 1949, taking the text directly from the KJV.  Milligan is pleased to present the first complete performance of The Book of Ruth by orchestra, chorus, and soloists. Tickets will be $10 general admission (free for students) and will be available at the door.  Advance tickets go on sale March 2 at the Milligan Bookstore, 423.461.8733.
