     On Thursday, April 24, the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Crafton Beck, will perform at the University of West Alabama's Bibb Graves Auditorium. The concert of orchestral favorites and light classics will begin at 7:30 p.m. General admission is $10 for adults and $2 for students. Sumter County Fine Arts Council members and UWA students with current student ID are admitted free.

    As the largest professional performing arts organization in the state, the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra performs to more than 75,000 Mississippians each year at more than 120 concerts statewide.

    The MSO tours statewide as a full orchestra, a chamber orchestra, and as one of three resident ensembles—the Woodwind Quintet, the Brass Quintet, and the String Quartet. Additionally the MSO supports three youth orchestras and an education program through which more than 500 school children receive daily instruction in violin, viola and cello.

    The Sumter County Fine Arts Council receives support from the Alabama State Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, the University of West Alabama and other agencies, businesses and individuals.
