October 2, 2003 -- The Jacksonville State University/Community Orchestra will present its annual Fall Concert on Sunday, November 16, 2003, at 2 p.m. The concert will be held at First United Methodist Church on the corner of 14th and Noble Streets in downtown Anniston. The concert is free of charge, and is open to the public. The program will include Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 in F Major, the "Brook Green" Suite by Gustav Holst, and Chorale from Partita for Orchestra by Stella Sung.
