Sydney W., a junior Orchestra cellist, was asked to compose a piece for the Pasadena Symphony which they performed this past weekend. I heard the Friday evening rehearsal and it knocked my socks off! Very complicated rhythmically and harmonically with great colors and energy! Bravo Sydney!

We are coming into the home stretch for our first concert of this year, October 30th at 7pm. One of the pieces the orchestra is performing is by composer/violist Maria Newman, of Newman family fame. She will be coming this Tuesday to listen to the rehearsal of her piece. Lots to do before October 30th! I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
