Villa-Lobos - Choro No. 4 three horns and one trombone
Revueltas - Escenas Infantiles

Rodrigo - Concierto de Aranjuez –[masked]-str
In my humble opnion, the Concierto de Aranjuez alone is worth attending the concert, it's one of my favorites :) I'm not that familiar with the other pieces, but I'm súre it'll be great.
The concert is going to take place in the Performing Arts Center, (Building R).
Under the direction of Maestro Brian Groner and comprised of professional, community and college musicians, the HSO will perform.
