The first performance of the season by the Sudbury Symphony orchestra struck the right note for the near-capacity audience at the Fraser Auditorium last Saturday evening.
Resident conductor Dr. Jamie Arrowsmith led more than 50 talented musicians on stage through a selection of popular orchestral movie themes for the first part of the program, and then recognizable and exciting symphonic pieces during the second half, which also included an operatic duo by local performers, which was well received.
During intermission and after the concert the faculty lounge at the venue was open for those who wished to socialize and enjoy refreshments.
Sudbury has reason to be proud of our orchestra, which enhances the cultural diversity of our city. The success of this first concert bodes well for upcoming performances. Information on future concerts is available on the symphony website at sudburysymphony .com
