Conductor David Zinman returns to his alma mater to direct a free concert this Sunday.David Zinman

Zinman will lead the Oberlin College Commencement Orchestra in Dvorak’s eighth symphony and the Brahms Academic Festival Overture. Brahms’s overture is based on student tunes. In 1879, Breslau University had awarded him an honorary Doctorate, and he composed the Academic Festival Overture as a musical thanks.

The concert is part of festivities surrounding Oberlin’s 175th commencement. Zinman, who studied violin at Oberlin, graduated at the college’s 125th. He is music director of the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, and of the Aspen Music Festival and School.

Zinman will conduct the concert on Sunday the 25th at 8pm, in Finney Chapel.
