Music Director Comments

I was excited by the outstanding performance of the orchestra on the opening concert. We were pleased to present Church Windows to our community, a work not performed often. With Devon Howard at the organ with the MVSO, the Respighi and the St.-Saens Symphony No. 3 really came to life. The orchestra’s hard work paid off throughout the concert, and it was a pleasure to return to the Kettering SDA for this 2015-2016 opening concert. What a way to start the season!

The MVSO is already working on a holiday program for the entire family. The music ranges from Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring to Herbert’s March from Babes in Toyland. Many popular contemporary holiday tunes will be featured in this entertaining, kid-friendly program.

We will soon begin work on the challenging music of John Williams for our March 6th concert. Now in his 80’s, Williams is likely the most prolific movie composer of all time, and his themes are among the most recognized of all film music. Included in the featured works will be music from the Harry Potter Sorcerer’s Stone, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Star Wars. We are looking forward to this concert of the masterful music of John Williams. Mark your calendars for this must see concert!
