We had great support for our November 12 and 13 joint performances with the Windham Orchestra of Sun Treader by Carl Ruggles and Don Quixote by Richard Strauss, soloist Michael Finckel. We appreciate everyone who came out, especially our loyal Sage audience that attended an evening concert and bid happily on our Silent Auction.
Sage City Symphony is especially grateful to the town of Shaftsbury, both for the town's continued support and the use of the elementary school for Saturday's performance. The school did very well at accommodating the almost double orchestra needed to perform the work by Carl Ruggles. Our players were very grateful for the opportunity to use the kitchen for dinner between the rehearsal and the performance, and the library for our instrument cases.
We thank the Windham Orchestra and their conductor, Hugh Keelan, for joining with us to create this program. It was wonderful to share this experience with Windham players and to play this program a second time in the Latchis Theater in Brattleboro, an opportunity that Sage City rarely enjoys.
