Hello fellow blog readers!
So the last post, I was wishing you safety in the snow storm. In this area today, weather predictions are for a high of 80 degrees! Where did the time go? (I have to admit, I am quite happy that it is no longer wintertime…)
Since then, Symphony in C presented two of its regular season concerts, a children’s concert and held a delicious brunch at the Hymerling Home. You can see pictures of all events and some video footage on our Facebook page! We appreciate feedback, comments and ‘Likes!’ Click here to check them out: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Symphony-in-C/161556760526579
In terms of other social media sources, we have recently started a YouTube page (http://www.youtube.com/symphinc) and a Flickr Photostream (http://www.flickr.com/photos/symphonyinc/). Now, we are even live on Wikipedia! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symphony_in_C_(orchestra)) Keep up with us!
We have one more concert this season, which is rapidly approaching! Our Lyrical Romance Concert is on Saturday, May 7th and is featuring the 2011 Young Composers’ Competition Winner, Michael Gilbertson, Soovin Kim playing Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, and Sibelius’ Second Symphony. (I hold Sibelius’ 2nd Symphony quite close and dear to my heart – it is probably my favorite Symphony of all time. The theme of the last movement makes me cry almost every time I listen to it…) 8pm – $21, $32, $48 for individual tickets if you don’t have one already (and $10 for students at the door!) Call our box office, or visit our website (http://symphonyinc.org/) for tickets or more information!
With this season coming to a close, plans for the next year have already been underway! Programming choices for the 2011 – 2012 season are a combination of both modern and classic works with an exciting roster of guest soloists (which includes Roberto Diaz – President of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and former Principal Violist of the Philadelphia Orchestra.) We are even collaborating with the Mendelssohn Club Chorus to perform Mozart’s Requiem in February 2012. I’m so excited… Read more about these decisions in today’s Courier Post article here: http://beta.courierpostonline.com/article/20110410/LIVING/104100310/1006/Krishna-Thiagarajan-charts-new-waters-with-Symphony-in-C
