LRSO to Perform 'An Evening at the Ballet'

The March 24th concert will be held at the
Inter-Lakes Community Auditorium in Meredith.

Meredith, NH - The Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra (LRSO) invites you to our concert on Saturday March 24, 2018 at 7:30pm at Inter-Lakes Auditorium in Meredith. The concert titled "An Evening at the Ballet" features a beautiful blend of well-known and well-loved themes from renowned ballets. Selections include Tchaikovsky's Overture to Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty Waltz, and Waltz of the Flowers from The Nutcracker; Stravinsky's Berceuse and Finale from Firebird; Gliere's Russian Sailors Dance; and the second half of the concert features the all-American musical brilliance of Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring.

Not to be overshadowed by the Ballet theme of this concert, we are also extremely pleased to present the co-winner of the LRSO's annual student concerto competition. Our first co-winner, cellist Roric Cunningham played to a standing ovation at our November concert. Our second co-winner, violinist Danilo Thurber, will delight with his rendition of Camille Saint-Saens Violin Concerto #3, Op 61 in B, 1st movement. An interesting note - Danilo auditioned last spring with a piece that was Violinst Danilo Thurber, co-winner of LRSO's student concerto competition, performs with the Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra on March 24, 2018 at Inter-lakes Auditorium in Meredith. previously performed by last year's concerto competition winner, so we asked Danilo to learn this entirely new piece to showcase his talent at the March concert. Fifteen-year-old Danilo was eager to oblige!

Danilo (Dacha) Thurber is a student at Phillips Exeter Academy who began studying violin in 2004 at the age of two. He has been a student of music since that time studying and performing with esteemed teachers and performers.

In addition to performing with the Phillips Exeter Academy's Symphony Orchestra, Dacha has played with the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras (BYSO) since 2012. Currently, he performs with the BYSO's premier ensemble, the Boston Youth Symphony. Prior to that he served as concertmaster for BYSO's Repertory Orchestra and Junior Repertory Orchestra.

Together with his brother he has been honored to play for a few notables, including the President of Serbia, on TV for WMUR (playing The Star Spangled Banner at the Boston Marathon memorial), and for NH Governor Maggie Hassan at the State House.

Dacha has been proud to donate proceeds from his public performances to the Phoenix Society, which provides support services to young burn survivors. Together with his brother, he has raised more than $2500 for this cause.

This March 24th concert is the third in the LRSO's spectacular 2017-2018 season. Reserve the dates for our final dual-performance POPS concert on May 19 and May 20, featuring songs of stage, screen, and beyond sung by theater performer Abigail Dufresne.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 students college-age and under (no children under age 5 please). Tickets are available online or from these ticket outlets: Innisfree Bookshop in Meredith and Greenlaw's Music in Laconia. Any unsold tickets will be available at the door starting one hour before the concert.

The LRSO greatly appreciates the support of its concert sponsor the Robert T. Smith Family Trust. Bob's love of the LRSO and his generous support is a big part of what makes the LRSO, a community orchestra, possible.
