The final concert of the Idaho State-Civic Symphony's 2012-2013 season will be held on Friday, April 26, in the Jensen Grand Concert Hall of the Stephens Performing Arts Center.

Please note that the concert will begin at 6:30 p.m., one hour earlier than previous performances this season.

Guest conductor Thomas Heuser will present "Brahms and the Romantics." Heuser has chosen three remarkable works for the evening's program: Schubert's "Overture to the Magic Harp" and Grieg's lively "Norwegian Dances for Orchestra, Op 35" for the first half of the program, and Brahms' magnificent "Symphony No 1 in C Minor, Op. 68" as the finale.

Prior to the concert, the ISU Chamber Orchestra will perform in the Rotunda at 6 p.m.  After the concert there will be a post-concert dessert reception with no-host bar, also in the Rotunda, in appreciation of George Adams, Idaho State-Civic Symphony interim conductor.  

Ticket prices are $32 for adults,  $17 for elementary through high school students, and $12 for third-tier balcony seat. Rush tickets for unsold seats are available at 6 p.m. for $17. A limited number of free tickets are available to ISU students with valid Bengal cards.
