Summer Pops Concert
To benefit the Village School of North Bennington
Sage City Symphony musicians were joined by players from the Music Company Orchestra for a summer pops concert. The program included works from the stage show Oklahoma, arrangements of American anthems by composers such as Morton Gould, work by Copeland and An American Elegy, written in memory of those who lost their lives at Columbine High School.
The concert raised $2000 for the string music program at the Village School of North Bennington. Thanks All!
Thanks to our Audience!
Sage City Symphony finished our regular 2013-14 season with a program featuring Allen Shawn's Concerto for Cello, Maxine Neuman, soloist;
