“Color and Romance” concert on February 20 at 8 p.m.: Just as painters use color, texture, light, and shadow, composer Christopher Theofanidis creates vivid musical imagery with lyrical melodies and brilliant orchestration in his triumphant work “Rainbow Body.” The winners of our 2015–2016 Competition for Young Musicians are featured in this concert full of exciting contrasts: Buckle your seat belt for Saint-Saëns’ wild “Danse Bacchanale” from Samson and Delilah. Hear Element 116, the jazz band led by Matt Finders, during intermission. And enjoy the warmth of Brahms’ ingenious Variations on a Theme of Joseph Haydn.
Competition for Young Musicians: Congratulations to Jiho Choi, cello (left), and Dong Hui (Tony) Kim, violin (right), winners of the 2015–2016 Competition for Young Musicians held on October 18. Choi and Kim will perform with the Symphony on February 20.

String players needed: Our community-based orchestra has given much pleasure to audiences and players alike for many years. It has provided volunteer players of varying ages and abilities with the chance to learn new skills and to enjoy playing with a congenial group. We are always interested in finding new players, particularly those in the string section. Join the orchestra.
