Midcoast Symphony Orchestra featuring Lise de la Salle
'Vive la Musique'
Sun. Oct. 26, 2:30 pm
Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 32 Johannes Brahms
Piano Concerto No. 3, Op. 30 Sergei Rachmaninoff
Lise de la Salle, Piano Soloist
"In just a few years, through her international concert appearances and her award-winning Naïve recordings, 26 year-old Lise de la Salle has established a reputation as one of today's most exciting young artists, and as a musician of uncommon sensibility and maturity. Her playing inspired a Washington Post critic to write, “For much of the concert, the audience had to remember to breathe...the exhilaration didn’t let up for a second until her hands came off the keyboard.” A native of France, now living in Paris, Ms. de la Salle has played with many of the world's leading orchestras and conductors, including London Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, San Francisco Symphony and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, among others." (from www.midcoastsymphony.org)
Tickets: $20; Students under 18 free. Available online www.midcoastsymphony.org or at the door.

Our New Stage!
The Orion now has a new stage surface. Smooth and sleek! Thanks to all who participated in this process, and to Dan Oram and his crew for completing the work so well and quickly.
THANK YOU to the Alfred M. Senter Fund for the generous $8,000 grant, received in December, 2013 for the stage floor replacement. Thanks also to the Wing-Benjamin Trust, for a $500 grant received this summer. We conducted a number of fundraisers--a dinner, and concession sales-- and the seat plaque campaign added to the income. Further seat plaques sold will help fund our next priorities. See below for seat plaque information-- income will go to the Capital Fund.
You can become an important and enduring part of OPAC when you “Have a Seat” — your name engraved on a permanent commemorative brass plaque, attached to a seat in the theater. Your donation helps the capital improvements fund. People who come to performances will notice your name and appreciate your support for the arts.
Or, buy a plaque as a gift for someone else—your parents or child, a favorite teacher, a friend, or someone you admire in the community. Click here for a brochure to learn more about the seat plaque campaign.
