The LaGrange Symphony presents EARTH, a concert of music of the earth and nature, on April 25, 2017 as we complete our season of focus on ELEMENTAL FORCES and the environment that surrounds us. As with the other ingredients of this season’s theme, AIR, FIRE, LIGHT, and WATER that are essential to our very existence, Music too is part of who we are and how we express the inexpressible. It defines us and moves us as human beings both collectively and as individual listeners.

 

Our concert opens with Rossini’s inimitable William Tell Overture in which we hear the great storm scene. Our own LSO musicians will appear as soloists for a complete performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons as we take a musically poetic journey through the seasonal forces that shape our year. Performing the violin solos will be Dr. Lorna Wood, LSO Concertmaster; Callie Hammond, LSO’s assistant concertmaster, Conductor of the Youth String Ensemble and teacher in the LSO Strings Programs; Elzbieta Tokarska, LSO violinist and teacher in the LSO Strings programs; and Celeste Myall, LSO’s Director of Educational Outreach, Conductor of the Youth Symphony, and a teacher in the LSO Strings programs. Each of these accomplished musicians will delight the audience with this music, composed in 1721 and still a favorite of orchestra patrons around the world.

 

We close our season together with a true American icon: Copland’s Appalachian Spring – a sonic tapestry of beautiful melodies (not least of which is the Shaker tune Simple Gifts), brilliant orchestration and evocative imagery.

 

Earlier in the season, Music Director and Conductor Richard Prior said, “It is my firmly held belief that you – as our wonderful patrons of the symphony and audience members – actually participate in the creative process that gives this music meaning and relevance. The music is only truly and fully brought to life by you hearing it, by your imagining of the images and drama that the musicians on our stage create in live performance. You are an essential element in – and of – the story; we cannot tell it without you!”

 

Join us as we conclude our wonderful season of music of the elements. Individual concert tickets are available at $30, $20 and $10 each. Students 12 and older are $5 and students under 12 are free but must have a ticket. Tickets are also available at the door. This concert includes a post-concert reception.

 

For tickets or more information, please contact the LSO office at 706.882.0662 or e-mail info@lagrangesymphony.org or visit us online at www.lagrangesymphony.org.

 

Cutlines:  Dr. Richard Prior, Dr. Lorna Wood – Spring, Callie Hammond – Summer, Elzbieta Tokarska – Autumn and Celeste Myall – Winter

Church Basement Ladies is a hit!
You’ve still got time to reserve your seats for this hilarious new, musical taking the country by storm! BUT- Church Basement Ladies
is already selling out most matinees- so don’t wait any longer!
Come on down to the Basement!
Lutheran ladies from rural Minnesota handle a record breaking Christmas dinner, the funeral of a dear friend, a Hawaiian Easter Fundraiser, and a steaming hot July wedding. They stave off potential disasters, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the Pastor on due course while thoroughly enjoying, (and tolerating) each other. Funny and down to earth, audiences will recognize these ladies as they begin to see the Church year unfold from below the House of God.
Playing Now thru May 7th

Afraid of needles? You are not alone. Many people share that fear but find that they can still give blood. What most say is that the slight initial pinch pales in comparison to the feeling of accomplishment they get at the end of a successful donation!

 

You’ll have an opportunity to get that great feeling of accomplishment when you make a donation of the “gift of life” in conjunction with the May 1 blood drive that will be held from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Senoia United Methodist Church.  The blood drive is co-sponsored by the local church and the Senoia Optimist Club.

 

The upcoming blood drive is for the Senoia area and beyond, and it will be held in the Fellowship Hall of the Senoia United Methodist Church.  The church is in the historic district of Senoia and is located at 229 Bridge Street.  It is at the intersection of Seavy and Bridge Streets.  For those not familiar with the area, you can turn east at the downtown intersection of Main Street and Seavy Street, and go past the Veranda Bed & Breakfast towards the City Park or State Highway 85.  The church is on the right – only about 2 blocks east of Main Street.

 

Members of the Senoia Optimist Club will offer blood donors their “famous” grilled cheese sandwiches along with a number of free coupons from local area businesses.

 

Donors at the Senoia blood drive are again asked to bring one or more non-perishable food items.  The Optimist Club members will collect these items and make them available to a local food bank in order to help those around us who are in need.

 

While “walk-ins” are welcome, potential donors may either sign up online at

http://www.redcrossblood.org/ or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).  In addition, Senoia Optimist Club member and blood drive coordinator Ellen Ingram may be contacted at 770-842-4533.

 

There is a need for all blood types. You are encouraged to please schedule an appointment to donate blood or platelets today.

 

The need is constant. The gratification is instant. Give Blood. ™
