River Cities Symphony holds performance in Marietta Friday
Posted on: 06/04/2013
By  Andy Rex
Friday evening, the River Cities Symphony Orchestra is performing a New York City Nights Pops concert at the Lafayette Hotel.
 
Orchestra President Mac Lichterman says that “we’re going to be performing an evening of Broadway numbers.  And, we’re doing a couple of classical numbers.  One of them is the William Tell Overture, which you might know better as Lone Ranger music.  We’re doing a Copland piece called ‘Quiet City,’ which is really quite beautiful.”
 
Also being presented are pieces from the musicals West Side Story, Oliver, and The King and I. 
 
Lichterman says they also are featuring some newer artists from around the area, including one who has made a name for herself in New York. 

“She’s appeared at Carnegie Hall a couple of times," Lichterman says.  "Her name is Tiffany CasaSante.  She’s a great resource for this area.  She’s a wonderful soprano.  Every year for the past several, we’ve been featuring young musicians.  This year, we have a young musician from the West Virginia Youth Symphony.  He is a very fine trumpet player.  He is going to be featured in ‘Quiet City’ along with our principal oboist Jenny Morris, who is going to be playing English Horn for that piece.  The name of this young man is Adam Gillespie.”
 
And, he says this is a chance to see the orchestra in something other than a stage setting.
 
“It’s a chance to be really up close and personal with the orchestra with table seating in an intimate atmosphere at the Lafayette Hotel ballroom," Lichterman says.  "The doors open at six, and the concert starts at 7.”
 
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students, and will be available at the door.  However, if you want to reserve table seating, call the River Cities Symphony Orchestra office at (304) 485-7068.
