Program Notes: 

The UMD Repertoire Orchestra performs two incomplete works: Schubert's Unfinished Symphony, of which only two movements are known, and "Ich bin der welt", a movement from Mahler's Rückert-Leide. This unfinished business is resolved with full performances of Rachmaninoff's First Piano Concerto and Sibelius's Finlandia.

The University of Maryland Repertoire Orchestra is a unique all-campus orchestra that is open to music majors, non-music majors, UMD faculty and staff, and members of the University of Maryland community. The orchestra prides itself on a wide range of projects, collaborations and repertoire. The group plays works by major composers such as Beethoven, shares the stage with rock bands, accompanies critically-acclaimed soloists, and forms chamber groups that play string quintets and even ragtime music.
