Juneau Student Symphony will perform two concerts
The Juneau Student Symphony will perform two Jazz and Pops concerts Friday, Aug. 18, the first at noon in the State Office Building Atrium, and the second at 7 p.m. at Marine Park, rain or shine.

The program will include "Take Five," "Pennsylvania 6-5000," "Pink Panther", and collections of Louis Armstrong, Cole Porter and George Gershwin.

The 40-member Juneau Student Symphony is directed by Rick Trostel, and was founded 26 years ago as the Juneau Youth Symphony. Its mission is to "provide the opportunity for qualified musicians of all ages to play in full orchestras with the aim of beautiful musical performance for the joy of our musicians and audiences."

This is a community orchestra for students of all ages.

Future performances include a fall concert scheduled for Oct. 28-29, winter concert March 10-11, and a spring tour in April 2007.

The Juneau Student Symphony is supported by the Juneau Symphony, the City and Borough of Juneau, the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council, VECO, and individual contributors. For more information about performances or how to join the Juneau Student
