Farmville Community Arts Council


The PCC Symphony Orchestra (PCCSO) will present its fall concert Oct. 15 at the Farmville Community Arts Council’s Paramount Theatre on Main Street. It will begin at 7:30 p.m. and feature various works, including Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 1,” in commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the German composer/pianist’s birth. The performance will also include “Star Trek through the Years” (in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing), the full-orchestra premiere of Philip Young’s “Remembrance,” and “Lucifer Polka” by Johann Strauss II.

PCC Music & Drama Coordinator R. Michael Stephenson noted that the concert would also include PCCSO’s 7th Annual Halloween Costume Contest for children 12 years old and younger. The winner, he says, will be invited on stage to conduct the orchestra.

Though the concert is free, donations will be accepted to support future orchestra activities.
