The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Youth Orchestras continues their 2012-2013 season on Monday, March 4, at 7:30 p.m. at Brainerd Baptist Church with a concert performed by the Symphony Orchestra with Gary Wilkes conducting, featuring musical works in memory of Stephen Panchaud, CSO violinist who recently passed away.
Mr. Panchaud was a violin teacher and mentor to many CSOYO violinists over the past several years. Gary Wilkes wrote: “During the 18 years that Stephen played and taught here in the Chattanooga area, he tutored several hundred violin students, taught orchestra at McCallie School, assisted with the orchestra at Girls Preparatory School, played with numerous orchestras in the area including Chattanooga, Huntsville, Birmingham, Knoxville and other cities, performed in nearly every church and synagogue in the area, and every person with whom he had contact, touched their lives in different ways. From his engaging British accent and striking charisma, his musical lessons always seemed to intertwine with life lessons, ones that we will not soon forget.”
The CSOYO Winter Concert will also be a Penny Concert, meaning that all children and students may attend for one penny, provided that they are accompanied by a paying adult. The Penny Concert is repeated again this year in the hopes that no child will be turned away for lack of the admission cost, and that whole families may be able to afford to attend.
Tickets are $6 for adults, $4 for children, students, and seniors. Children and students may attend for one penny, if accompanied by (paying) adults. Call 267-9011 for more information.
The CSOYO Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sandy Morris, will open the concert. Also featured on the program is student soloist, John Burton. John, a CSOYO principal trumpet and student at Walker Valley High School, will be performing the 2nd movement of Ewazen’s Trumpet Concerto on the second half of the program.
