The Downey Symphony Orchestra had another concert this last Saturday at the Downey Civic Theatre featuring Alison Bjorkedal, harpist. I loved watching her as she gracefully touched the strings of her harp to convey the emotions of both the music and her love for the music.
The whole evening was filled with listening to gifted musicians playing works by Copland, Mahler, Debussy, and Tchaikovsky. I encourage you to make plans to see the symphony at their next concert in April.
After the concert I caught up with Alison and Sharon Lavery, the Music Director for the Downey Symphony Orchestra, as they posed for the photographers.
