Light Rain


Symphony concert will feature music from movies

By The Mercury

TOPEKA - A “Cinema Classics” Topeka Symphony concert will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in White Concert Hall on the Washburn University campus. 

Guest conductor Christopher Kelts will be on the podium for a program featuring a wide variety of cinema favorites. 

Kelts, assistant professor of music and director of orchestras at Washburn University, conducts the University Symphony Orchestra and String Orchestra and teaches applied viola.

Serving as guest soloist will be Topeka native and operatic soprano Lillian Sengpiehl. 

Singing with Sengpiehl will be a Wichita native, tenor Michael Moore.

Saturday’s concert will focus on well known music from the cinema.  From songs from older movies, such as “Singin’ in the Rain” and “Over the Rainbow,” to music of “Star Wars,” the music will be familiar to the musicians as well as to the cinema buff. 

A Flex Pass, good for any combination of four admissions, is available for $115.  Single tickets for this concert are $32, $27 and $22, with full-time students at half price.
