THE SANTA CLARITA PHILHARMONIC PRESENTS THEIR FINAL FREE CONCERT FOR THE SEASON
Ever wonder about the life of an orchestra musician? Some career musicians tour all over the world performing hours of music in a different country for months or years at a time. There are other musicians whose “day jobs” are bank veeps, retired teachers, trustees, techies and graphic artists. After work, these professionals juggle work-life schedules, their instruments and surrounded themselves with other passionate orchestra musicians who volunteer their time and musical talents. This is your typical community orchestra musician.
The Santa Clarita Philharmonic is one of those orchestras that nurtures the gifts of those community members who have taken a non musical career path but retained their love of music and best of all, their musican skills!
The Santa Clarita Philharmonic announces the the third and final concert of the 2015-2016 season on Sunday, May 15th at 3pm. There will be an art exhibition by ARTree Community Art Center at 2pm. The concert will feature the winner of the orchestra’s second Student Concerto Competition in which junior and senior high school students were invited to apply for the opportunity to perform with the orchestra. The winner of the auditions was Audrey Park who will be playing the Mendelssohn violin concerto in e minor.
In addition to the Mendelssohn Violin concerto, the orchestra will be performing an original composition by Sarah Wallin-Huff,our concertmaster. The piece demonstrates how contemporary music can be melodic and inspiring. The orchestra will also be performing Beethoven’s Egmont Overture and Haydn’s Symphony 45, the Farewell Symphony.
