This should not come as news to anyone keeping up with the Events page, but I was offered the Principal chair of the Aurora Symphony Orchestra. It has been an exciting season so far, especially since the Music Director search has given us a different conductor for each concert. Join us for our final concert in May!
I am substituting with the Aurora Symphony for the opening concert of the 35th Anniversary season. There is a possibility for this to turn into a permanent position. Come enjoy the concert featuring Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4, Chausson Poeme, and Verdi La Forza Del Destino Overture. Visit the Projects/Events page for more details.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Orchestra at Temple Square Concert this last weekend. The program was a great success! I had a really good time with all three pieces and really appreciated the large audiences that turned out to support the ensemble. Thank you!
Also, there is a new Featured YouTube Video. Take a minute to check it out.
Yesterday we had our first tutti rehearsal for the Orchestra at Temple Square Spring Concert. I sure am excited for the concert! We spent most of the time reading through the Van Brugge Double Concerto, and I am looking forward to putting it together with the soloists. It is atonal and the writing is very rich in the use of colors.
We also did a read through of Bernstein’s West Side Story. Woo-whee! Fun stuff. The music for the concert is really going to be something else. I am listening to Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet right now, and I am getting more and more pumped up for this concert. Hope to see you there!
