EAC to host the Albuquerque Youth Orchestra and Symphony

By Lori Dugan

THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College’s Fine Arts Department is hosting a free concert by the Albuquerque Youth Symphony on January 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the EAC Fine Arts Auditorium.

The orchestra will perform music by Bach, Saint-Saens, Wagner, and Williams.

The symphony plans to perform Dvorak’s “Carnival” Overture, the Saint-Saens Cello Concert, and selected movements from Mahler’s First Symphony.

“This program was always near and dear to the heart of our former orchestra conductor, Rexann Lindsay,” said Fine Arts Division Chair Dr. Crae Wilson. “It’s a nice way to remember her while supporting this talented group of young musicians.”

For more information about the free concert, call Wilson at 428-8460.
