The Lamont Symphony Orchestra will perform two of the best-known pieces of orchestral music of all time in a concert Feb. 9.

“The concert will be like the classical music equivalent of a Hollywood blockbuster,” says Lawrence Golan, the orchestra’s music director and conductor.

The program features Beethoven’s famous Fifth Symphony, followed by Ravel’s arrangement of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, which takes the listener on a musical tour of 10 drawings and watercolors by Russian artist Viktor Hartmann.

Guest conductor Rin Jong Yang, former professor of conducting at the Conservatory of Music in Seoul, South Korea, will lead the orchestra through these masterworks.

The concert is at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 9 in Gates Concert Hall at the Newman Center for the Performing Arts. Admission is free, but tickets are required. Complimentary tickets are available in person at the Newman Center Box Office. Tickets may also be reserved online or over the phone (303-871-7720) for a small service charge. Parking is free at the Newman Center parking garage.
