The Baylor University Symphony Orchestra will present a concert with music by Rossini, Haydn and Stravinsky at 7:30 p.m Thursday, Jan. 30, in Jones Concert Hall. The orchestra performs under the direction of Baylor's Conductor-in-Residence Stephen Heyde.

Opening the program will be the sparkling overture to Gioacchino Rossini's 1813 opera, L'Italiana in Algeri. Diego Piedra, a senior violin major from Puerto Rico, will conduct this piece.

One of Joseph Haydn's most popular middle-period compositions, Symphony No. 45 in F-sharp minor, will follow.

Closing the program, with graduate conductor John Amagliani leading the orchestra, will be Igor Stravinsky's "Dumbarton Oaks" Concerto.

This concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Baylor School of Music at 710-3991.
