Hitting the High Notes-The Torrington Symphony Prepares for Cabaret Pop Concert

Late into the night the Torrington Symphony Orchestra prepared for their upcoming “Cabaret Pops Concert”. Under the direction of conductor Maurice Steinberg, the musicians transformed their surroundings into a journey through the best of American cinema. Experiencing the music of legendary composer John Williams performed live by a symphony orchestra is an amazing experience and the theme to Jurassic Park in particular inspires one to recall moments of triumph and wonder.

This concert is of enormous cultural significance as it will feature the PREMIERE of composer E. Karl Gallmeyer’s original work entitled “Western Suite”. This piece takes the audience on an expedition through the old west as they were all on a Conestoga wagon on the trail of high adventure. It’s a masterful work and the Torrington Symphony makes it come alive.

One highlight of this rehearsal night was the performance by soloist Jeannine Gallmeyer who exquisitely performed “Adelaide’s Lament” from Guys and Dolls in such an amazing fashion that all in attendance, including the symphony, spontaneously erupted in applause.

The concert will take place on 3/8/2014 at 8pm
