120. Last Symphony of the Season
Dare I say it, but Sunday the weather forecasters are mentioning the possibility of you-know-what, r_ _ _ n! I don't even want to say it out loud for fear of jinxing this rare and momentous event. Saturday would be the day to get outdoor stuff done like mulching the flower beds, tying up the tomato plants, and playing a little.
Indoor activities may be more appropriate on Sunday and fortunately the last symphony performance of the season is this Sunday, May 1st. The Temple Symphony will be performing pieces from French and Russian composers. The title of the performance is "Elan: a la francaise, a la russe!" The pieces to be performed are Suite No. 1 from Carmen by Georges Bizet, Suite from the film Poruchik Kizhe by Sergei Prokofiev, and Concerto in G major for piano and orchestra by Maurice Ravel.
The Temple Symphony Orchestra is made up of approximately 65 talented, professional musicians
from the greater Temple and Central Texas area. Most are educators, but all
have a passion for music and their instrument.
The mission of the Temple Symphony Orchestra is to provide music of the
highest artistic standard, performing a broad range of repertoire to a wide
and diverse audience through live performance; to act as ambassador to the
community; to educate students and adults in the rich orchestral traditions
of our heritage; and to serve as a leader in the cultural life of Central Texas.
The TSO is dedicated to making the orchestral experience accessible and
appealing to everyone and is committed to providing the community with
quality musical programming. Throughout the season, the Temple Symphony
Orchestra features local as well as national and international artists performing
classical music, pops and jazz.
Performing in the Center for the Performing Arts at Georgetown High School, the Temple Symphony Orchestra comes to Georgetown through the support of the Georgetown Symphony Society. Most programs
also feature a pre-concert lecture at 3:15 p.m.
Get your tickets at the Sun City Community Association Office (512-864-1200) or at HEB's customer service desk and enjoy this local treasure of great music performed live!
