Saturday, Oct. 7 is the season opener for the Marquette Symphony Orchestra (MSO) An Evening with Tim Kliphuis. The concert will take place at the Louis G. Kaufman Auditorium, 611 N Front St. with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and the concert beginning at 7 p.m.

For the first half of the concert, composer and a guest Tim Kliphuis will perform Violin Concerto in D minor from “Ulysses” with the orchestra. The second half will include a performance of the well-known Symphony No. 9 in E minor, “From the New World” by Antonin Dvorak.

Andrew LaCombe is a cellist in the MSO and began playing for them in 2006.

“Music has really been a way to connect with my family, friends and community on a special level. I was lucky to have many opportunities with music in Marquette,” LaCombe said.

Abigail Faix, Features Editor
My name is Abby, I am a fourth-year student at Northern. I am studying Multimedia Journalism with a minor in Political Science. I've always been passionate about journalism since I was in high school. I was offered this position as a Journalism Practicum student and am now so thankful to have the opportunity to write for The Northwind as the new Features Editor. I've found that The Northwind has led me to more connections throughout the university and community than I would find on my own. I'm always interested in getting to know new people and what's happening around Marquette.
