Mountain Home Symphony Spring Concert!

MOUNTAIN HOME SYMPHONY  –  SPRING CONCERT JUNE 7, 2009
The Mountain Home Symphony of Mountain Home, Arkansas announces a concert entitled Mountain Home Symphony: The Next Generation. The local community orchestra will celebrate the spring of its nineteenth season with its performance on Sunday, June 7th at 2:30 PM at Dunbar Auditorium of Mountain Home High School, 500 Bomber Blvd. (off Hwy. 62 at the West Creek Shopping Ctr.) Conductor and Music Director, Barbara Deegan, is entering her seventh season leading the Mountain Home Symphony.

As usual, the Mountain Home Symphony concert will have something for everyone. It is a great way to spend the afternoon with the whole family. In addition to playing several familiar pieces like John Philip Sousa’s Liberty Bell and Leroy Anderson’s Fiddle Faddle, the orchestra will spotlight some American composers by performing an arrangement of pieces by Duke Ellington, two movements of Wood Notes Suite by William Grant Still, and a piece featuring percussion by Elliot Del Borgo called Chant Ritual. Audience donations are appreciated.

The orchestra takes pride in the opportunity to work with young musicians and watch them grow. This concert will feature five of the young players. Scholarships are offered to graduating seniors along with constant mentorship with older musicians and the experience of playing with a full orchestra.
The Mountain Home Symphony is a community, non-profit, orchestra consisting of volunteer musicians from southern Missouri and northern Arkansas.
