Martha Harvey is a native Texan who First Fall concert for UTEP symphony The University Symphony Orchestra of U.T. El Paso will present its first concert of the season next Friday at 8 p.m. in Recital Hall. The concert, under the direction of its conductor, Laurence Gibson, will run the gamut from seldom heard repertory to ever-popular selections. In keeping with the Halloween season the orchestra will play Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain. This piece nf programmatic music, with its frightening shrieks and ghostly scenes has long been a favorite of young people. AT THE other extreme will be Anton Wchern's Five Pieces for Orchestra from the year 1923. While now considered a classic of the twentieth century, those miniatures with a total playing time of about five minutes still startle many cars. They are scored for solo strings, E flat, B flat, Bass clarinets, guitar, mandolin, harp, organ, and other instruments. The concert will begin with the overture to Rossini's Cinderella. The story is a popular one although Rossini's opera is not often produced. As usual in this composer's work, we hear witty little themes countered by long, dramatic crescendi and violent contrasts. PERHAPS the most unusual offering of the evening will be Brahm's Serenade in D for small orchestra. Here, many of the orchestra's violinists will exchange their instruments the larger viola, since Brahms omitted the violins from this work. The darker sound thus created is brightened by the beautiful woodwind writing, of which Brahms was a master. The orchestra invites the public to its concerts free of charge. has lived in El Paso since IBau.
