    I did not get a chance to talk to some of the Meetup group. Next time I will have more time. The orchestra sounded great! I enjoyed the day... Thanks, to all who came out today

    It was a varied program, from Mozart to Holst. I think the orchestra played particularly well today, especially for a community orchestra such as ours! The audience seemed to agree with their generous applause after each piece! Thanks to all for coming!

    Welcome to all who are attending! Come on up and say howdy, if you'd like to! I'll hang around the stage a bit after the concert. I play violin in the orchestra.

    If you're going to dinner after the concert at Francesca's, it's best to make a reservation because it gets very crowded!

    Also, some orchestra folks are gathering at Winberie's after the concert. It's less expensive and a nice cozy place with good food. Winberie's

      Really wish I could make this! I love the Dominican venue & Francesca's!

    Looking forward to hearing the chorus! They will sing Holst's Songs for Rig Veda, accompanied by harp only! And the chorus appears again, as a ghostly song during Neptune!

    I am one of the gals in the SOPRF chorus so I also will already be there. :)
    Glad that you made it into a meetup!

    "Mars" is an exciting piece from The Planets! http://youtu.be/s8EwBTQhl3Y

  • Elizabeth R.

    There will be a multi-media display as the orchestra plays "The Planets". This should be a great concert!
