Lynn Philharmonia: There are a number of orchestral ensembles in the area that enjoy regular followings, and one of the first ones to play every season is the Lynn Philharmonia, the student orchestra of the Lynn University Conservatory of Music. Music director Guillermo Figueroa, in his first full season with his student charges has scheduled at least one piece of contemporary music on each of the six programs he’s presenting this year, including works by Marshall Turkin (In Memoriam), Christopher Rouse (Der Geretette Alberich), Behzad Ranjbaran (Flute Concerto) and Harold Farberman (Triple Play, a clarinet concerto). The September programs feature Figueroa, a violinist, as soloist in Puerto Rican composer Ernesto Cordero’s Ínsula, a suite for violin and strings. Also on the program is Elgar’s Cockaigne Overture and the Fourth Symphony of Brahms. Tickets range from $35-$50. Call 237-9000 or visit
