Livingston Symphony Orchestra Invitation for Tuesday, June 21

Listening with LaGruth

WHEN: Tuesday evening, July 21, at 7:30 pm

During this time of social distancing, Livingston Symphony Orchestra members have been meeting with musical director Anthony La Gruth for ZOOM meetings scheduled during our regular rehearsal time.

Tuesday evenings from 7:30pm -9:30 pm are set aside to explore a representative work by a different composer each week. The story of the composer’s life is examined, followed with explanations of the score and themes, and finally, the opportunity to listen to the piece.

Music chosen by LaGruth and/or orchestra musicians since early May has included Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, Dvorak’s” Symphony No.9,” Elgar’s “ Enigma Variations,” Tchaikovsky ‘s Symphony No. 5, and works by Sibelius and Copland amongst others.

Our orchestra has missed playing for you, and as a way to help bridge the gap, Music Director, Anthony LaGruth invites you to join this week’s ZOOM party, which features Mozart’s oft-performed, glorious 40th Symphony, one of only two of his 41 symphonies written in a minor key. This latest edition of Listening with LaGruth will take a look “under the hood” and see if we can figure out what makes this symphony great!

“See” you there!
