AMHERST, Mass.—The Amherst College Orchestra will celebrate the Class of 2007 in its annual senior concert at 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, in Buckley Recital Hall in the Arms Music Center at Amherst College. The Amherst College Orchestra will pay tribute to the graduating class in the final concert of the academic year, performing the “Academic Festival Overture,” composed by Johannes Brahms in gratitude for the conferral of an honorary degree, the two-movement “Unfinished” Symphony by Franz Schubert and the rousing Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” by Antonin Dvorak.

The concert is free and open to the public; refreshments will be served. Black Sheep desserts and coffee will be served at intermission; the concert will be followed by an after-party for the Class of 2007 (admission by ticket stub).
