    Event Summary

    The Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra (LRSO) invites you to our concert on Saturday March 28, 2020 at 7:30pm at Inter-Lakes Community Auditorium in Meredith.

    The LRSO features renowned local guitarist David Newsam performing the enchanting Guitar Concerto in D Major by Tedesco, a lyrical work balancing solo guitar with orchestral texture. Also on the program are the Rakoczy March by Berlioz, Debussy’s famous Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 “Pastoral”.

    David Newsam is a renowned guitarist, recording artist, performer, author, and instructor. He is currently an associate professor at Berklee College of Music where he has taught since 1989. David created the guitar program at the University of New Hampshire where he teaches, directs the UNH Guitar Ensembles, and coaches jazz combos.

    David's theater experience includes performances with Jack Jones, Mitzi Gaynor, Dianne Carroll, The Fifth Dimension, The Shirrelles, and Carol Channing.

    Also on the LRSO’s performance are the haunting “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun” by Debussy – a classic work most recognized by the lilting opening flute solo; Berlioz’s bombastic Rakoczy March; and finishing with Beethoven’s 6th Symphony “Pastoral”. The Pastoral Symphony was groundbreaking because Beethoven broke with the traditional symphonic form, and as a nature lover composed the Symphony as "more the expression of feeling than painting".

    This March 28th concert is the third in the LRSO’s spectacular 2019-2020 season. Reserve the dates for our final dual-performance POPS concert on May 16 and May 17, “Broadway Then and Now” featuring singer, dancer, and actress Ashley Whalley. LRSO performs a variety of hits from the timeless Guys and Dolls and Cabaret, through modern classics Wicked and Waitress. Full concert details are at www.LRSO.org.

    Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 students college-age and under (no children under age 5 please). Tickets are available online at www.LRSO.org/TICKETS, or from these ticket outlets: Innisfree Bookshop in Meredith and Greenlaw’s Music in Laconia.

    The LRSO greatly appreciates the support of its concert sponsor the Robert T. Smith Family Trust. Bob’s love of the LRSO and his generous support is a big part of what makes the LRSO, a community orchestra, possible.

    Price: $20 Adults, $10 Students
