PORTLAND – German guest conductor Klauspeter Seibel will lead the Portland Symphony Orchestra in a Tuesday classical concert at 7:30 p.m. March 23 in Merrill Auditorium.

Beginning the evening of music from Germany is Beethoven’s powerful “Egmont Overture.” It is followed by Hindemith’s Symphony: “Mathis der Maler,” which is thought of as an anti-Nazi manifesto. The evening is complete with Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 in E minor.

Seibel, who’s in his seventh season as music director of the Louisiana Philharmonic in New Orleans, is a regular guest conductor with the operas of Frankfurt and Dresden.

Merrill Auditorium is in Portland’s City Hall.

Tickets are $49, $42, $34, $25 and $15. They may be purchased at the PortTix box office; call (207) 842-0800; or go online to this Web site: www.port-landsymphony.com.
