Spectacular Finale for 40th Season
The Fremont Symphony Orchestra, southern Alameda County's premiere cultural organization, celebrates the conclusion of its 40th anniversary season on May 1st with a spectacular salute to the 1940s.
Highlights of the program include Big Band and Hollywood classics at the orchestra's annual Pops concert on May 1st, 2004 at 8:00 p.m. The Symphony's conductor, Maestro David Sloss, specially designed the repertoire to entertain current subscribers and to entice new patrons to the concert hall as the orchestra celebrates 40 years of service to the community. Seven soloists in the featured performance of Leopold Mozart's "Toy Symphony" include Fremont City Council members Steve Cho, Dominic Dutra, and Bill Pease. Also featured on the toy instruments will be Newark's Mayor Dave Smith, Fremont Flowers' owner Dirk Lorenz, and Howard Hyman, executive vice president of Fremont Bank. Soloists will perform on the bird whistle, cuckoo, toy drum, and toy trumpet along with the full professional orchestra.
"We feel especially playful at our annual pops concert," says Executive Director Anastasia Herold Arnold. "Maestro Sloss has come up with a wonderful program, and our highly esteemed soloists have gone along with his plan to send the season out with a bang!"
