LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Lafayette Symphony Orchestra is preparing for its opening night this weekend.

The season gets under way Saturday night with a performance about trials, triumphs and forbidden love. It makes for a dramatic night of orchestral storytelling.

Symphony musician Randy Salman has been a part of the orchestra for eight years and looks forward to opening night each year.

“[It’s] really nice to play in a supportive community like Lafayette,” he said. “It’s a little unusual, I think, because it’s sort of a beautiful mix between a professional orchestra and a community orchestra.”

Opening night starts Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Long Center for the Performing Arts, 111 N. Sixth St, in Lafayette.
