We are back!

After a two-year COVID-induced hiatus, Dalton’s own community orchestra announces its fall concert, “It Is Well.” An uplifting selection of familiar and sacred music will be performed Thursday, September 29 at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church in Dalton.

It’s 30th anniversary season and plans are already underway for the annual Christmas concert on December 8th.

For three decades, L’Abri Symphonie has offered middle and high school musicians the opportunity to advance their education by playing in an orchestra, an opportunity that does not exist in their schools.

Historically, L’Abri’s membership has been approximately 60% student, with adult amateur musicians and a core of music teachers and professional musicians making up the remainder. Teachers and professionals all volunteer their time, and there are no membership fees. Concerts for the public are also free.

The orchestra rehearses and performs at the First Baptist Church in Dalton, which has provided a large practice room and use of the sanctuary for concerts. Without such a sponsor, the orchestra could not exist as a voluntary organization. Financial support came from the Brown-Whitworth Foundation, the Community Foundation, several area businesses, and individual donations at concerts.

It all started in 1992 with L’Abri Academy of Fine Arts, founded by Reverend Ron McKinney of Kinsey Drive Baptist Church and two retired music teachers, Gene and Betty Lindauere. The original ensemble of music students gradually grew, and by 2000 was a small orchestra. He was invited to base his operations at the Colonnade Convention Center in Catoosa County, which had a 500+ seat theater. After several years, however, the direction and commitments changed, and L’Abri had to find another home.

The chamber orchestra returned to Dalton in 2012 and, having been established at First Baptist, was able to grow into a full symphony, numbering 67 members by 2020. It presented two major concerts at the Dalton Convention Center in 2013 and 2014 , but later chose to perform only at First Baptist.

Then COVID hit and indoor facility restrictions meant the orchestra could no longer rehearse or perform. When restrictions eased in 2021, the band attempted to restart, but so many members missed so many rehearsals due to the COVID surge that it was not possible to prepare a gig. Finally, it has managed to regroup this year and will present its 30th anniversary concert.

The orchestra faces a major challenge for its future, however, it remains a teaching organization, but students have not returned post COVID. More than financial support, the orchestra depends on the involvement of the music departments of our schools, parents and teachers of student musicians. If they refer promising students, L’Abri can continue to provide an excellent learning experience for years to come.

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (CBS DETROIT) – The Detroit Symphony Orchestra will perform a free concert at the Hawk Community Center on September 22 as part of its DTE Community Concert Series.

The free concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Community Center’s Mainstage Theater located at 29995 W. Twelve Mile Road in Farmington Hills.

During this concert, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by Na’Zir McFadden, in his debut as the new Associate Conductor and Community Ambassador.

The concert series is organized by the DTE Foundation, which is the philanthropic arm of DTE Energy.

Officials say the DTE Foundation has supported the orchestra and its cultural programs for more than 50 years.

“The arts enrich communities and foster cultural awareness. It’s important that everyone has access to these experiences,” said Lynette Dowler, President of the DTE Foundation. “The DTE Foundation is thrilled to support the DSO, which celebrates the role the arts play in making our community more inviting and connected.”

The concert series aims to bring world-class talent to communities in southeast Michigan.

“As a musician myself, there is nothing more impactful than having access to music in your community,” said Town of Farmington Hills Performing Arts Coordinator Samuel Koeppe. “I can’t think of a more perfect opening for our concert season here at The Hawk.”

The concert is free of charge, but each person must still reserve a place.

Music will once again fill Powell Hall when the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra opens its 2022-23 season, the orchestra’s 143rd, in September. Led by Stéphane Denève in his fourth season as Music Director, SLSO will take audiences on a musical adventure to places near and far, real and imagined, physical and spiritual.

“I like the idea that music allows us to connect people to other places, to another physical place, to other cultures or to the imagination”, says Denève.

Denève designs concerts to transport the public and break musical boundaries. The season’s programs are inspired by and represent places on Earth, as well as in the solar system, distant imaginary galaxies and places accessible by faith or imagination. Throughout the season, the SLSO collaborates with many acclaimed guest artists both new and familiar to St. Louis and features the SLSO family of musicians.

During the concerts of the opening weekend on September 17 and 18, Denève will be both conductor and guide speaker, evoking the colors of the Mediterranean ports with “Escales” by Jacques Ibert. Next, Nathalie Joachim – singer, flautist and composer – joins Denève and sings her own “Fanm d’Ayiti” (Women of Haiti), celebrating her heritage and fusing women’s voices with the sounds of Haiti. The opening weekend ends with a sunny stroll through the Bohemian countryside in Antonin Dvorák’s Eighth Symphony.

From September 23-25, the SLSO takes audiences to Hogwarts with performances of the score to ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2’. The SLSO performs Desplat’s iconic score as the film is projected onto a screen that puts the audience at the heart of the action.

East meets West in a program that explores musical influences from September 30 to October 1. Directed by Denève, the SLSO performs works by Toru Takemitsu and Qigang Chen, Asian composers who combine the influences of their countries of origin with French classical traditions. Inspired by the Chinese text, Gustav Mahler’s “Song of the Earth” struggles with life, death and meaning.

Powell Hall will transform into a Broadway theater when the SLSO and The Muny celebrate the legacy and music of composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim on October 2. Known for such iconic shows as ‘Sweeney Todd’, ‘Merrily We Roll Along’, ‘A Little Night Music’ and ‘Into the Woods’, Sondheim was one of the most influential and iconic composer-lyricists of the 20th century. century.

This fall, the SLSO is embarking on a musical journey not to be missed. Classical concert tickets starting at $15 are available now.

The first “Mighty Maestros” concert is scheduled for October 29 and will focus on “meaty classics,” Lapalme says, of composers like Ludwig van Beethoven and Robert Schumann rather than hybrid tunes from mixed genres and eras of music. .

With each concert varying in number of performers, sometimes with fewer than 50 musicians and others as high as 70 with guest artists and soloists, Lapalme says this year will mainly involve medium-sized concerts.

While the pandemic has been difficult for the performing arts, he says, he believes it’s their growing social media presence and video productions that have kept the RDSO afloat. While it won’t fully reach 2019’s subscription levels, it says it’s time to jump in with both feet.

“We’re so happy to be in a position where we can play music for them. [the audience] and share what we think about it,” Lapalme said, reminiscing about their first live performance in person last May. “The geometry of the orchestra varies a lot from one concert to another but we can always expect a great evening.”

A few weeks ago, flexible subscription packages were made available, allowing attendees to choose their gigs of interest rather than one big package for all. Individual concert tickets are also available for purchase.

Normally hosting seven shows through June, this year’s schedule will include six, all held at the Red Deer Polytechnic Arts Center (100 College Blvd.):

  • December 3 – Ropes for the season: Christmas favorites performed by the Rosedale Valley Strings Youth Orchestra alongside the RDSO String Section featuring violin, cello, double bass and more
  • January 14 – French Suite: 20th Century French Music with Jazz-Inspired Sections with Saxophonist Chee Meng Low
  • March 4 – Break the prejudice: To celebrate International Women’s Day, all music will be composed by female composers past and present
  • April 29 – Baroque Delights: Mainly using wind instruments like flutes and saxophones and brass instruments like horns and trumpets to perform the grand and energetic style of the music of the 17e century
  • May 27 – Wandering in Wonder: Played against a backdrop of Albertan landscapes, the final concert is a storytelling experience

“What we like to do is keep it very informal. I talk a lot to the public; I will explain things as well as execute them. There is a cozy and very friendly atmosphere at the concerts. It would be very much our signature, I would say, it’s the most Canadian aspect of what we do,” he said.

“You can expect very good music performed very well.”

Tickets can be purchased on the RDSO website.

They were due to kick off their new season on September 17 with a Last Night of the Proms-style gig at the Hodgson Academy in Poulton.

The orchestra wowed a sold-out audience at Lancaster Castle earlier this month after being invited by the Duchy of Lancaster to help celebrate the Platinum Jubilee by performing one of the first outdoor concerts to take place in the historic castle.

VIPs including the castle constable and a large city audience were treated to all of last night’s traditional favorites, including Jerusalem, the Imperial Crown and the Land of Hope and Glory.

Their follow-up concert at Poulton was to be a repeat of this popular program, but with the addition of the Poulton People’s Choir who were to lead the community in singing and performing with the orchestra.

However, plans have now changed and the evening will instead pay tribute to the Queen after her death last Thursday.

BSO Chairman Martin Scragg said: “We were deeply honored to be invited to play at the Queen’s Castle last weekend and the response from the huge audience was absolutely amazing.

“We can say with some confidence that we are the only symphony orchestra to have played at the Queen’s Castle in its entire history.

“Like everyone at home and around the world, we were deeply saddened to learn of Her Majesty’s passing.

“The Queen has been a great supporter of the arts throughout her long life and so we have decided to make the next concert a tribute to her and a celebration of a life well lived.

“It will also be an opportunity for the people of Fylde to come together and reflect on the sad times we are going through.”

The concert will still include some of the traditional prom favorites, but will also try to reflect the dark mood of the nation at the moment.

There will also be a nod to Her Majesty’s love of musical theater with a selection of My Fair Lady and the orchestra’s award-winning performance of Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
