Behind the Scene: Brantford Community Symphony Orchestra
Harmonious tones echoed throughout the auditorium of theNew Covenant Christian Fellowship, as eager music fans hummed along to the musical sounds of the Brantford Community Symphony Orchestra. A free show, with a suggested donation intended to support the art of music, saw over 100 people visit and enjoy the performance. The orchestra was well timed and rehearsed, under the guidance of seasoned conductor Deb McLoughlin. Each set was met with an enthusiastic ovation from attendees, and many could be seen being hit with waves of emotions as each performance crescendoed. We were treated to modern arrangements as well as classics such as ‘Toccata’ byGirolamo Frescobaldi, ‘Emperor Waltz’ by Johann Strauss Jr, and the show concluded with an invigorating and uplifting performance of “La Vie Parisienne Overture” by Jacques Offenbach. The latter of which was dedicated to the peoples of France, as tribute to their strength during recent hardships.
It was sincerely a pleasure to hear the orchestra play. Their next performance will be at New Covenant Church, located on Holiday Drive, on Sunday, May 29th at 7:30 p.m. for the 4th Annual Spring Concert. Make sure to Be Seen in attendance, supporting local music.
