December concert follow-up: Listen to the Prelude talk given on December 6 by Lara Webber (55.6 MB mp3 file). Read the concert program insert, including program notes (392K pdf). An article by Beth Jensen in the Valley Times about Lara Webber and the concert was published on December 5.

Barnes is a Tri-Valley Hero: Music director emeritus Art Barnes was named the 2014 Tri-Valley Hero in Arts and Culture by the East Bay Division of Embarcadero Media; read the consequent feature article by Dolores Fox Ciardelli about Barnes in the Pleasanton Weekly. The awards presentation at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Pleasanton on October 20, 2014, had a nice touch: Barnes received his engraved trophy from the hand of Bob Williams, Barnes’ friend and longtime assistant conductor.
Pops 2014 Other recent concerts: The October 26 Pops concert was a star-spangled success. See videos of the August 9 concert of the Livermore-Amador Symphony Youth Orchestra May 2014 concert surprise on YouTube, and read the LASYO concert program. Enjoy photos from the May concert, featuring Art Barnes with the orchestra and the (surprise visit!) Stanford Band, read the “Five Dedicated Decades” May concert program insert, and listen to the prelude lecture (49MB mp3).
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.
Orchestra members: See details on the rehearsals page. Please arrive at regular rehearsals by 7 p.m. All players should fill out a musician information form. (For some restricted info which was updated 12/8/14, click here.)
