The concert will include music from the hit movies "Apollo 13" and "Forrest Gump," as well as "Summon the Heroes," the theme of the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta.It will also include older, but nonetheless familiar, classical pieces: Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" and Rossini's "William Tell Overture" (the Lone Ranger theme).
The 7-year-old, 80-member volunteer orchestra is the only one on Salt Lake Valley's west side. Members range in age from 12 to 76 and come from as far as Tooele and Huntsville to weekly rehearsals. They include doctors, lawyers, teachers and deputy sheriffs.
The concert begins at 8 p.m. in the Granger High School auditorium, 3690 S. 3600 West. Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at Jerry's IGA, Harmons West Valley, Harmons Bennion, the Valley Fair Mall customer service booth or at the door. Call 969-4480 for more information.
