Dear friends of harp music,
for those of you who know me well, you know that my summers are filled with music! I am the harpist for the Missouri Symphony – an international festival orchestra that pulls musicians from all over USA to come to make Columbia their home for next 6 weeks during the Hot Summer Nights festival. It’s an incredibly talented group of musicians and I am honored to be a member and only one of the handful of local players. Our musicians arrived 2 days ago and we are ready to perform our first concert tomorrow Thursday June 7th, at 7pm at Stephens Lake Park. It’s a free concert, family friendly, bring a blanket or a folding chair to sit on.
After we kick off the season, a roller coaster of concerts will last next 6 weeks. We have masterworks concerts, pop concerts, free family concerts, tours and free outdoor concerts around Columbia, Patriotic Pops, fully staged opera – La Boheme, Silent Movie with live orchestra performing music to it and I am probably forgetting a bunch.
It would take me an hour to just list them all. But I am really looking forward to playing with Missouri Contemporary Ballet this Saturday, Oscar Night at the Movies concert, La Boheme of course and Dvorak’s New World Symphony.
Please check out our full season at http://themosy.org/hot-summer-
nights-2018 and also check out these posters bellow. Most of the concerts are at the Missouri Theatre, so when you walk by pick up our flyers and brochures.
Have a great summer!
