Southern Miss, School of Music Symphony

Southern Miss's School of Music, will be performing the world premiere of a new piece of music. An American Requiem was composed in recent years by Edwin Penhorwood, as a memorial for those affected by Hurricane Katrina. Penhorwood will be present at the premiere of his work, and as a collaboration between the Hattiesburg Choral Union (composed of community singers as well as members of the school's chorale and concert choirs) and the Symphony Orchestra of Southern, this will be a major event of the year for the School of Music. The performance is to be directed by Gregory Fuller, the Director of Choral Activities.

The performance will be held, Thursday, April 8th, at Main Street Baptist Church on Hardy Street. Information for the tickets and performance can be found on School of Music webpage
