My new orchestral work Gold and Silver got a shout-out as Helena Symphony music director Allan R. Scott met with Helena mayor Jim Smith and others for the Symphony Under the Stars announcement yesterday. Here’s the complete article in Helena’s Independent Record. The concert is 8:30 p.m. Saturday, July 19, on the grounds of Carroll College.
“Gold and Silver” is Oro y Plata, the Montana state motto. A new poster (pictured, left), symbolizes a fire tower, symbol of Helena. There will be a canned-food drive at this free concert; last year they collected over 15,000 pounds.
The program includes lots of Disney movie scores. They’re expecting upwards of 16,000 people to show up for this free concert. Reserved seats are already sold out. There will be fireworks. They play Gold and Silver right before the fireworks.
