San Bernardino Symphony closes 87th season with "Finale Bravura!"

Posted By Staff — inlandempire.us

Cellist Ruslan Biryukov returns for the stirring conclusion of this season's symphonic feast

San Bernardino – On May 28, the San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra will perform "Finale Bravura!" a classical
concert featuring works by Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Popper, and Dvorak.

"We have been likening the selections this season to a celebration of the diverse flavors of symphonic music. So in
this final course of the symphonic feast, we will serve up four of the most beautiful symphonic pieces ever written,"
said Music Director and Conductor Frank Paul Fetta.

The concert will open with what Fetta describes as a "wonderful and delightful masterpiece," Wolfgang Amadeus
Mozart's Magic Flute Overture from the opera of the same name which premiered on September 30, 1791, just two
months before the composer's untimely death. Although ill at the time, Mozart conducted the premier, writing to his
wife shortly thereafter about his excitement with the growing crowds attending the two-act opera. First recorded in
1937, the work has inspired numerous books, films, art works, and musical adaptations.

"Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's romantic interpretation of the Rococo period and then David Popper's virtuosic fantasy
complete the first half of this repast which will be served by a good friend of the Symphony, cellist Ruslan Biryukov,"
explained Fetta. >>> Read full article

High school reunion special donation

High School Reunion special donationHigh school reunions and a shared love of music helped bring about a very special reconnection for Highland resident Barbara Pike and William “Bill” Jones, who after not seeing each other for over 30 years, reunited to attend the 65th San Bernardino High School Class of 1950 reunion together in October 2015 in what proved to be the start of new romance.

Bill, class of 1950, and Barbara, class of 1951, had been friends playing togehter in the school’s band. Both married their first spouses soon after graduation and for a few years the two couples shared a home as the men joined the Navy and spent much of their time overseas during the Korean War.

After the war their lives took different paths as Bill built a career in technology working for IBM in New York and later Hughes Aircraft in California while Barbara remained in the San Bernardino area and became a teacher. >>> Read full article


Symphony benefits all ages

Symphony Benefits all AgesThe Highland Area Kiwanis Club learned of the San Bernardino Symphony’s active efforts to introduce the community’s students, children and families to the entertainment and culture of symphonic music through a variety of programs aimed at attracting and educating young audiences. San Bernardino Symphony Executive Director Anne Viricel, club member and Highland resident, shared that attracting young audiences is beneficial to the symphony, the community and its young people.

“This can make a big difference because kids who participate in the arts outperform their non-participating peers three-to-one in their academics,” Viricel said. “The arts tend to open up students’ world views.” >>> Read full article
