Friends of Music (FOM) launches a much anticipated 2012 - 2013 season with a performance by the Two Rivers Chamber Orchestra on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m. Guest Conductor Jed Gaylin will be at the podium in the Frank Arts Center at Shepherd University.
Gaylin is widely known as the Music Director of the Bay Atlantic Symphony, Principal Guest Conductor of the National Radio and Film Philharmonic, Principal Conductor of the Cape May Music Festival and Music Director of the Johns Hopkins Symphony Orchestra.
"We are all in for a treat when the Two Rivers Chamber Orchestra performs on Sept. 15," said FOM president, Neal Barkus. "Our Guest Conductor, Jed Gaylin, has selected a fantastic program of music composed by Cowell, Milhaud and Mozart. We are anxious to see a conductor as accomplished as Jed lead our Orchestra. Get your tickets now, because this will be a sell-out."
From left sitting are Joan Ergin, Alice Barkus, Dolores Lowe. Standing are Joelle Serot, Erdem Ergin and Elisabeth Staro. All are Friends of Music.
