Seton Hill University opened its Performing Arts Center, located at the corner of West Otterman Street and Harrison Avenue in downtown Greensburg, in 2009. The center hosts theater, music and dance performances by Seton Hill students as well as community performers.

The Westmoreland Youth Symphony Orchestra program will present its spring concert May 8 at Seton Hill University’s Performing Arts Center in Greensburg.

Admission is free for the 7:30 p.m. program at 100 Harrison Ave.

The WYSO Philharmonia will present arrangements of Respighi’s “Ancient Aires and Dances,” the last movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 and highlights from “Harry Potter” film scores.

The WYSO Philharmonic will perform Rossini’s “La Gazza Ladra Overture,” the last movement of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.2 and John Williams’ music from “The Empire Strikes Back.”

Two concerto competition winners, who auditioned in January, also will be featured, along with six other WYSO Philharmonic members.

Flutist Emma Jones, a junior at Hempfield Area High School, will perform the first movement of Devienne’s Concerto No. 7. Flutist Evelyn Markle, a sophomore at the PA Cyber Leadership Academy, will be featured in Mozart’s “Andante for Flute and Orchestra.”

The WYSO program is an educational offering of the Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra’s Academy of Music. Members of the orchestras range in age from 7 to 18.
