The Auburn Symphony will pay tribute to Maestro Michael Goodwin with a concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 11, in the Placer High School auditorium.

Goodwin, who conducted the symphony for 17 years, was killed in a car crash in February.

The symphony will be led by volunteer guest conductor Pete Nowlen, director of concert bands at the University of California, Davis, and opera musical director at California State University, Sacramento.

Pianist Konstantin Soukhovetski has volunteered to return for the memorial, which will include Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24.

An update on the symphony's Facebook page Friday read, "The 'Concert in Memory of Maestro Michael Goodwin' is at maximum capacity, but please email the office to be put on the waiting list. Also, there will more than likely be a limited number of returned tickets available at the door. Thank you so much for your ongoing support in this very difficult time and beyond."
