Members of the string ensemble
St. Scholastica's String Orchestra and Chamber Ensembles will perform waltzes and other dance music during a concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17 in the Mitchell Auditorium.
Professor of Music Penny Schwarze, who is helping organize the concert, said the program will span a variety of time periods.
"We'll be playing dance music from the Renaissance through the 20th century," she said. Selections will include a waltz by Tchaikovsky and a polka by Strauss. A guitar duet will feature a sampling of Beethoven.
