Music is in the air

It is almost September and music is in the air as The Fremont Symphony Orchestra prepares to open for a new season of melodious music.
Before the official launch of the season, the Symphony will hold a concert featuring the Chitresh Das Dance Company performing the classical Kathak dance of India. The performance is presented as part of Fremont Symphony Orchestra's Family Concert Series designed to introduce young concert-goers to the Bay Area's diverse cultural heritage through quality performances. Tickets for the hour-long concert are $12 for adults and $6 for children 17 and under.
The Fremont Symphony Orchestra, founded in 1964, officially opens its 41st season on the 25th of September at 8 p.m. Led by Maestro David Sloss, the Symphony is a professional orchestra comprised of 65 accomplished musicians. Orchestral favorites such as Scheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov, Verdi's Overture to La Forza Del Destino and Concerto for Marimba, and Vibraphone and Orchestra by Darius Milhaud will be featured. General admission is $35-$40 and $20 for students with current I.D.
Among this season's highlights is a performance in March 2005 of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat with returning guest soloist Chloe Pang. At age 12, Chloe Pang is considered a rising star in the world of classical music and has gained national recognition.
Both performances will be held at the Smith Center for the Fine and Performing Arts located at Ohlone College, 43600 Mission Boulevard in Fremont.
