When we would prepare the mind by a forcible appeal, an opening quotation is a symphony preluding on the chords those tones we are about to harmonize.

We are doing an organ symphony, and we need that instrument. First Presbyterian Church has one of the largest and best organs in all of West Texas.

It'll be a really, really huge challenge for me because I've never done anything like that with a symphony before.

Randy Owen

During his four-year tenure as conductor of the symphony orchestra, Kevin did much to raise the standards for the group. He challenged them with new repertory as well as with some of the giants of the traditional repertory. His performance of the Mahler Second Symphony was said by some long-time music faculty to be one of the highest points in the history of the School of Music.

It was a wonderful surprise. We did not know that Bertha had remembered the symphony in her will until after her death. It was such a generous thing to do.

Jeans & Classics have a great reputation as one of the more highly rated national touring symphony pops program groups. The Jeans 'n' Classics band -- there are several of them -- do covers of great bands of the past. There's a Led Zeppelin band. They have a Beatles Band. And people really swear by them. They are very well rehearsed and they are very polished.

Mahler's first symphony is not a typical symphony in that it's not abstract music; it does conjure up images of nature and images of heroism.

Gregory Pritchard

And it still produces, too. The Stockton Symphony is top-notch in my book, and there's some great students coming to the institute. Joe Gilman (the American River College music professor who also teaches at the institute) is one of the most talented pianists I've ever heard. That praise doesn't do him justice.

A symphony is no joke.

Johannes Brahms

I chose Beethoven because it is very recognizable. Most people know those famous first four notes of this symphony.

We're playing Mozart's 35th symphony because of the historical significance. It was the first piece the orchestra played when it started in 1982.

Gregory Pritchard

There needs to be a concert like this. We have an extraordinary trombone section (in the Utah Symphony), and NOVA needs to feature sections, as well as individual players.

The (symphony) board just decided we didn't have the cash to make payrolls at this point, and we'd better stop.

Fred Berkenkamp

Things we do and experience have resonance. It can die away quickly or last a long time; it can have a clear center frequency or a wide bandwidth; be loud, soft or ambiguous. The present is filled with past experience ringing in various ways and now is colored by this symphony of resonance.

It's not every day you get to attend a symphony. That kind of exposure is good.

Beverly Thomas

This is such a hard thing. Selling could hurt the symphony, and we want to protect the integrity of what this facility is here for.

Writing a play, you start with less, so more is demanded of you. It's as if you have to not only write a symphony, but invent the instruments as well.

David Ives

Many of our audience members are the same people going to the symphony, the opera, the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra and Ensemble Music Society. By reducing the number of concerts to six, they have a greater chance at attending more of our events.

As you know, we have been struggling recently to keep our non-profit symphony orchestra afloat in the midst of a changing community and cultural environment. Symphony operational costs have risen and our donations and sponsorships are down sharply.

Fred Berkenkamp

Recovering data without making provisions for recovering applications is a lot like having the sheet music but no instruments, musicians, concert hall or conductor to play the symphony. It's just not going to get the job done.
