Posted on: August 24, 2010

The city of Mission of Viejo, in California, recently unveiled a community mural featuring Pacific Symphony Music Director Carl St. Clair and musicians from the orchestra. The mural, in tile, is now displayed at the Oso Creek Trail near the Oso Viejo Community Center, where the orchestra performs free summer concerts. In addition to images of the musicians the mural also features 4-by-8-inch border tiles with eight measures of music by Frank Ticheli, who gave permission for the city to display images from his compositions Postcard and Radiant Voices. The finished mural, created by several hundred people of all ages, measures more than twelve feet wide and three feet high. “We are thrilled to be working with Pacific Symphony,” said Dru Maurer, community services supervisor for Mission Viejo. Our partnership with the Symphony is one that we are so proud of that we wanted to commemorate the fantastic music and fellowship that have resulted from it.”
