Music on a summer's eve

Anderson Symphony Orchestra presents 'A Little Night Music'


“It’s an opportunity for the audience to get to know them more on a personal level,” said Sowers. “These are really wonderful, witty, intelligent and talented people. It sort of personalizes it a little bit.”

Stone said that she's hoping to see new people attend this year's concert, noting, "It's a real fun event."

More concerts set

Funds raised through the upcoming summer concert go to support the ASO’s 46th symphony season. That kicks off on Saturday, Oct. 12 with Mahler’s First Symphony, the “Titan.”

“This is the largest piece that the orchestra has ever played,” said Sowers, anticipating 84 musicians on deck.

On Saturday, Nov. 9, the ASO will feature English music, with principal oboist Aryn Sweeney in the spotlight.

Then, circle your calendar for Saturday, Dec. 14. That’s the date of the Christmas Concert when concert-goers can expect some new arrangements in the mix.

Sandi Patty teams up with the ASO on Saturday, Feb. 15, for the Valentine’s Concert. Sowers noted that after an inaugural collaboration with the ASO dating back to about 1992, Patty has performed with major orchestras throughout the country. Valentine’s Day makes a great theme, too. “It’s such a wonderful occasion for that, so many fantastic love songs,” said Sowers.

The orchestra puts a bow on the season with Carl Orff’s "Carmina Burana" on Saturday, April 5. Sowers noted that the famous work calls for both chorus and soloists. “It’s a very exciting work. That’s going to be a lot of fun."

    Cathy Hensley’s never been much of a drinker. It wasn’t something that interested her very much, so it seemed unfathomable that she would ever run a winery. But after her son Eric offered her and her husband, Duke, some wine he made, it changed things.
