Jessica Wu is shown as she received a well deserved standing ovation at the LSO October concert.
“A terrific way to open the season! – Wonderful performance!” “Very nice touches throughout – Bravo”
October 6th marked the LSO’s opening concert for the 2015 /16 “PASSION – POWER – PRESENCE – PRIOR” season titled Musical Chemistry, conducted by Dr. Richard Prior. Featuring guest artist Jessica Wu, this concert delivered everything promised and more. Beginning with a terrific rendition of our National Anthem, the LSO and the audience chemistry began. From there the performance continued to mesmerize with: Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto; Smetana: Moldau; Borodin: Symphony No. 2
There were numerous special guests in attendance and a few who had travelled all the way from England. The recently auctioned art pieces for the Painted Strings project were on display. Winners of the auctions that closed that day were made public. Congratulations to all the October winners. There is still time to bid on other Painted String pieces!
When the concert came to a close, Dr. Prior and the LSO also received a well deserved, heartwarming, standing ovation.
Many patrons commented on how excited they are for this season to continue. It is our goal to bring a sense of celebration to each concert and to make each audience member eagerly await the next performance. The wonderful comments are a joy to hear. Thank you to all of our patrons for supporting the Arts in LaGrange and especially the LaGrange Symphony Orchestra.
