"Serenade for Strings" to pack Bedell stage

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - The Southeast Missouri Symphony Orchestra will take the stage tonight for a program entitled “Serenade for Strings.”

The orchestra will be joined by three orchestras from Cape Girardeau’s public schools.

The combined orchestras will play string music by Bach, Meyer, and Ralph Vaughn Williams.

Over 163 players will be on stage when all the orchestras unite, according to Sara Edgerton, artistic director of the Southeast Missouri Symphony Orchestra.

"This will be the first time that we will really be combing in such a complete and wonderful way with all of the players at once. This is kind of unique," Edgerton said.

“A Serenade for Strings” will take place tonight at the Bedell Performance Hall on Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus at 7:30 p.m.
