Mahler, Khatchaturian and Friends
Outside it was mild for December. But inside the holiday spirit was in full force. The Orchestra presented a Holiday Pops concert to a near capacity, and truly inter-generational audience. The concert concluded with a spirited encore during which the "Man in Red" himself made an appearance! We were grateful for May Funeral Home's sponsorship of this concert, and were so pleased to have a significant number of the Dedham Retired Men's Club in the audience!
Members of the Orchestra participate in many musical performances beyond the regular season's formal concert series. This album contains images from some of those performances.
The Orchestra kicked off its 71st season on a beautiful autumn afternoon with a program entitled "American Classics." Guest artist Elzbieta Brandys joined the Orchestra for Griffes' "Poem for Flute and Orchestra."
The orchestra welcomed students of the Dedham School of Music during a portion of the concert. My gratitude to Vicki Nelson for these images of adults and youth collaborating.
