Goleta Valley Community Orchestra Free Concert

 A free orchestral concert will be held at the Wake Center, 300 N. Turnpike
Road, Goleta on Monday June 13, 2016, from 7:15 pm to 8:45 pm. The Goleta
 Valley Community Orchestra will be playing Haydn-
Symphony no.97, Bizet- L’Arlesienne Suite, Faure-Pavane and Handel-Concerto for Orchestra.
This free concert is offered by Santa Barbara City College Center for Lifelong Learning. The orchestra is a community-based organization, whose primary aim is to promote an appreciation and cultivation of classical music. The purpose of the concert, according to Laurel Fryer, Artistic Director, is to educate and enlighten members of the community, children particularly, about the beauty of orchestral music. Fryer explains, “ I give an explanation before each piece of music to give a little background and to illustrate what to listen for in the sound. At the end of the concert, children are invited to explore with the musicians any instrument they find interesting.”
This concert is provided in a non-intimidating, highly accessible setting for families and individuals who may not have ready access to an orchestral experience.
For further information, please contact Laurel Fryer at 805-698-0833 or gvcorchestra@gmail.com.
