Next Concert April 11: Hear a Fantastic Flute! at our April concert as Pleasanton native Annie Wu returns home to perform François Devienne’s elegant Flute Concerto No. 7. We open the evening with Aaron Copland’s “Our Town,” and we end with the expressive themes and majestic harmony of Sibelius as we perform his richly romantic Symphony No. 1 in E minor.
Special events May 7 and 15: Save the evenings of Thursday May 7—for a screening of The Red Violin followed by a dessert buffet—and Friday May 15—for a musical soirée with soloist Elizabeth Pitcairn. Read more on the May concert page.
Fiddle Club: Fiddle Club is a three-year-old program of the Livermore-Amador Symphony Association aimed at introducing 5th graders to playing the violin. Sessions this year are at Jackson Avenue Elementary School in Livermore and Kolb Elementary School in Dublin. Read about it on the Youth page.
Competition winners: Congratulations to Vincent Liu (left) and Misha Galant (right), winners of the 2014–2015 Competition for Young Musicians. Liu and Galant, both pianists, performed with the Symphony on February 21.
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. Cellos and violas are in special demand! Join the orchestra.
