Music On The Move [AUDIO]

Wyoming Symphony Music on the Move

A musical outreach initiative by the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra is in it’s second year.  “Music on the Move” looks to bring small ensembles into the community and local schools as a way to nurture a love of music and to get folks face to face with the artists who make up the state’s Symphony Orchestra.

Kate Tiernan is the Orchestra’s Executive Director and she explains.

“Small ensembles of the symphony musicians perform small concerts in remote locations, whether its in Casper, or surrounding rural communities, that don’t otherwise have access to quality music.”

Tiernan says they want to be educational and will often match the performance  with a question and answer session.

She says they’ve been bringing programs to local schools and various small venues around town.

“Actually we’re just scheduling some events and we’re really hoping- we’ve had a call from another non-profit organization who would like us to do a “Music On The Move” performance there and one of the other schools has called us and we’re looking at doing  a performance in April there.

She says “Music on the Move” will be popping up at events this spring and later in the summer.

In the meantime the full Wyoming Symphony Orchestra  performs this Saturday as part of its concert season at the John F Welsh auditorium. The program, “Symphonic Greats”, includes a performance by Cellist, Jolyon  Pegis of the Dvorak Cello Concerto.
