The Furman Symphony Orchestra will present its Concerto Concert Friday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. in McAlister Auditorium on campus.

Part of the music department’s Sound Quality Concert Series, the performance is conducted by Thomas Joiner and features five student soloists. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $5 for students. The concert is also among Furman’s Cultural Life Program events.

The soloists are winners of the biennial FSO concerto competition. They are:
