An unsigned story in the Clinton Herald (Iowa) on Tuesday (9/9) reports on plans for the Clinton Symphony Orchestra’s 61st season. It begins with an October 11-12 program of music from Austria, Italy, France and England, featuring Australian-born cellist Timothy Archbold in the Elgar Cello Concerto. “Members of the orchestra will perform music written for small ensembles on the afternoon of Nov. 9 at Zion Lutheran Church in Clinton.” Other area ensembles will join the Clinton Symphony for its traditional holiday concert on December 13. “The orchestra will choose an area high school musician from the annual Young Artist Auditions in January” to perform as soloist in the February 28 concert at Morrison High School, an “annual event [that] honors both student musicians and music educators in this area. In addition to the Young Artist, the orchestra will perform music of Johannes Brahms and Antonin Dvorák…. To close the regular season, [Music Director Brian] Dollinger has programmed three ‘No. 3’ selections: Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 3, Haydn’s Symphony No. 3, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3.”
