ASO Update - Libby Watson & Bruce Riesling
Libby spoke first and thanked us for inviting them to speak so they could update members on the upcoming schedule of performances. Music Director, Bruce, then went on to talk about the first half of the season mentioning the concert last October – The American West; last November – Tchaikovsky; the Christmas Chorale last December. The second half of the ASO season will feature Marvel-ous Heroes on February 15; Mendelssohn & Mozart on March 13; Picture it! On May 1; Old Friends on June 5.
Bruce was able to tell some very colorful stories around each of the concerts to put us in the mood to attend! Always great to have them visit our club and how fortunate we are as a community to have such a renowned group of total gifted and professional musicians.
