Valdosta Symphony Orchestra will have concert

VALDOSTA — The Valdosta Symphony Orchestra will continue its celebration of 23 years of “sublime music” by introducing audiences to “New Frontiers” at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17. The concert will be held in Valdosta State University’s Whitehead Auditorium, located on the corner of Brookwood Drive and Oak Street.

The evening will feature four pieces of music — each pointing to a new path in one way or another — beginning with Jennifer Higdon’s “String.”

“Jennifer Higdon is one of the most successful living composers,” Dr. Howard Hsu, Valdosta Symphony Orchestra music director, explained, “and her style of music is engaging, approachable, and intelligent.”

The evening will continue with Robert Schumann’s Konzertstück for Four Horns and Orchestra, op. 86. This piece, composed for a newer model of French honor, will feature a special performance by Kristen Johns, principal horn of the Valdosta Symphony Orchestra, Bernhard Scully, former principal horn of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Joseph Gill, a VSU Department of Music alumnus, and Paul Basler, distinguished performer, pedagogue, and composer.

The evening will conclude with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 25 in G Minor, K. 183, the composer’s first mature, serious symphony. It was featured in the movie “Amadeus.”

Individual tickets for the concert are $25 each. Reservations are required.

Call VSU’s College of Arts Outreach Office at (229) 333-2150 to reserve tickets or learn more.

    Damage to ornamental plants caused by deer has increased significantly during the last few years. And this damage is both an urban and a rural problem due to increasing deer populations and suburban development strategies into natural woodlands.

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

  • Kichler, Jeremy.jpg Nematodes in my garden!

    I often get questions about controlling nematodes in the home vegetable garden. Since there are no home gardener chemicals we can get economically for nematode control then the answers get few.

    Questions about fire ants in the garden are common around the Extension office. Fire ants can be a nuisance and they can damage some vegetable crops such as okra and Irish potatoes. Fewer fire ant mounds would result from tilling your garden but a few mounds may persist in heavy mulch or close to vegetable plants. In these cases fire ant baits or mound treatments may be in order.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
