Community/Youth Orchestra Opens Fall Concert
The Lake County Symphony will present its annual Fall Concert at 2 p.m., November 19, at Lakeport’s Soper Reese Theatre. Musical Director/Conductor John Parkinson leads the orchestra in colorful selections by some of the greatest composers in Western history. The orchestra begins its performance with Johannes Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture, Op. 80, followed by the “Rosamunde Overture” by Franz Peter Schubert, and “Danse Bacchanale” by French composer Camille Saint-Saens. After a brief intermission, the audience will hear The Magic Flute Overture, K 620 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The concert ends with Josef Haydn’s Symphony No. 99 in E flat major.
The concert starts, as is customary, with a performance by the Lake County Community and Youth Orchestra conducted by career musician Camm Linden. Linden plays with the Lake County Symphony and is the president of the Lake County Symphony Association. The LCCYO will play several familiar pieces, including Brahm’s Hungarian Dance No. 5, and Ravel’s “Bolero.” They will also debut “Honor and Tribute,” a spirited march by Kevin Kaisershot. Formerly the LCSA Youth Orchestra, this group now welcomes all players from school age to adults with current or previous intermediate to advanced musical experience.
