A few word from our Presidents
Symphony Board President
Mary Anne Jordan
Dear Friends of the Symphony,
Another exciting Symphony Season is coming and we look forward with anticipation to the selections that Maestro Lohss and the Music Committee have chosen for this year.
As you may or may not know, sometimes a choice of music depends on the cost and availability of the music selected. We all like to hear pieces from Broadway hits and themes of films that we remember and love. The cost of the music, however, may be prohibitive. It is not unusual for one copy of a piece of music under copyright law to cost several hundred dollars. Multiply that times 40 + musicians and the score for the conductor and you run into thousands of dollars for one song.
Most of the music the Symphony Orchestra plays comes from free libraries or other sources that do not require large payments. While we would like to present the show tunes and pop pieces that people like to hear, we cannot justify using a large amount of our budget on music alone.
In the meantime, remember that many of the beautiful melodies we hear come from composers from the 18th and 19th centuries, think of Debussy’s Clair de Lune, Handel’s Messiah, wonderful composers like Mozart, Mendelssohn and Ravel, and Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite! When we walk out of the theatre and are humming the melodies we just heard we know that the right ones have been selected.
We thank you, our patrons, for coming to the Symphony to hear all kinds of wonderful music. We will continue to bring our best to you.
