LPO Unveils Its 'Evolution' Season

Brendan TownsendMr. Brendan Townsend, conductor of the Laredo Philharmonic Orchestra, describe the process of choosing repertoire and selecting musicians, he spoke enthusiastically about the increased role of local musicians and, in particular, TAMIU and LCC students who are playing in the orchestra this season.

"Every concert has one piece for expanded orchestra, and we are going to offer those extra seats to young student interns," he said, "And this brings us ever-closer to the goal that we have had for many years of nurturing our own orchestral players."

Each of the concerts in the coming season has its own unique theme, but the over-arching theme of evolution and musical development links all.

All are performed on Sundays at 4 p.m. with altering venues at TAMIU's Center for the Fine and Performing Arts' Recital Hall and LCC's Guadalupe and Lilia Martínez Fine Arts Building.
The first concert is set October 8, 2006 at TAMIU and is entitled "Discovery & Experimentation," featuring the works by Maxwell-Davies, Haydn and Saint-Saens.

"This concert celebrates three very prolific composers who over the course of their long lives used experimentation and incorporated many discoveries into their music, which has led to these works becoming favorites with audiences around the world," said Townsend.
