LEMON GROVE -- The Grossmont Symphony Orchestra and Master Chorale will join flautist Suzanne Kennedy at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, May 29 at St. John of the Cross Catholic Church, 8086 Broadway, in a performance that will feature the works of German, Russian and American composers. 
There is no admission charge, but freewill offerings will be accepted at the performance which will include Rimsky-Korsakov's "Capriccio Espagnol, Op. 34;” Robert Schumann's "Symphony No. 4, Op. 120 in D minor" and Leonard Bernstein's "Halil for solo flute and orchestra" as well as symphonic dances from Bernstein's Westside Story. 
Kennedy played flute and piccolo with the Orchestra Nova, and also serves as music director at St. John of the Cross Catholic Church. 
Music Director Randall Tweed of the Grossmont Symphony Orchestra and Master Chorale said he anticipates the performance will be an "international evening of sweeping vistas, brooding emotions and Latin theatrical dance."
