The Beloit Janesville Symphony Orchestra (BJSO) will perform "Music of America: Dvorak's New World Symphony and Beyond" at 2 p.m. on Oct. 6, at the Janesville Performing Arts Center (JPAC), 408 S. Main St.

A free "Pre-Concert Chat with the Maestro" will be held at 1 p.m. in the JPAC gallery with Dr. Rob Tomaro.

In keeping with the purely American theme of music representing the late 19th to mid-20th centuries, Joseph Ketchum, BJSO concertmaster will play solo violin on Ervin Rouse's "The Orange Blossom Special" and Charlie Daniels' "The Devil Went Down to Georgia." Both pieces are arranged by Milwaukee composer Glenn Asch.

Ketchum is active as a soloist, chamber musician and teacher in both the classical and pop realms. He served as the string department chair at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music for four years before leaving to start a private studio in 2012. He performs regularly as concertmaster of the Skylight Opera Theatre Orchestra and the Beloit Janesville Symphony.

After the concert, there will be a reception to honor Tomaro on his 20th year as the artistic director and conductor of the BJSO in the JPAC gallery. Complimentary light hors d'oeuvres will be served. A cash bar will be available.

Tickets to the concert are $20 for adults, $5 for students aged 16 and older and free for ages 15 and younger. Tickets are available online at www.janesvillepac.org or by calling 608-758-0297. Tickets are also available at the door.

Additionally, there will be a dress rehearsal at 7 p.m. on Oct. 3 at Eaton Chapel on the Beloit College Campus. The rehearsal is open to the public at no charge. Donations will be accepted.
