A Day With Rossini, Lalo & Beethoven-- Sandy Eastman
Sandy Eastman is providing LLCC members with yet another opportunity to attend his pre-concert class and the symphony "No Ties Allowed" dress rehearsal for the San Luis Obispo Symphony concert coming up in October.

There is a cost now to attend the Symphony rehearsals. This cost to attend the rehearsal is not included in the price of the course on Brown Paper Tickets. At the PAC, adults must pay $15 and seniors (age 65 and older) must pay $10. The rehearsal is free to children. The tickets for the dress rehearsal will available about a week before the performance AND may be purchased by calling (805) 756-4849 or by visiting the PAC Box office Tuesday-Saturday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.

On Saturday, October 8, the Symphony will perform  

Rossini: Overture to The Barber of Seville
Lalo: Symphonie espagnole for Violin and Orchestra with Giora Schmidt
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 in C minor

Guest Conductor Andrew Sewell  has enjoyed fifteen seasons as Music Director of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra in Madison.

Guest Artist Violinist Giora Schmidt is quickly establishing himself as a virtuoso of the grand tradition with a distinctive voice. His performances are illuminated by a richness of color and effortless technique making Giora one of the most commanding young artists on the stage today.

He has appeared with numerous symphony orchestras around the globe including, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, New Jersey, Fort Worth, Honolulu, San Diego, Vancouver, Toronto, National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba, Orquesta Filarmónica de la UNAM (Mexico City), Orquesta Sinfonica de Chile, Sendai Philharmonic and the Israel Philharmonic.

Sandy will present a lecture about the composers who will be involved in the Saturday dress rehearsal and the evening orchestra performance.  Then you will join Sandy and attend the San Luis Symphony for the No Ties Allowed Dress Rehearsal of that performance for the Classics in the Cohan series.

This course will be in two parts.  In the morning, there will be a lecture about the composers, about the pieces that are to be played in the rehearsal, and about the soloists.   In the afternoon, the class, as a group, attends the dress rehearsal of the performance.  At the dress rehearsal SLO Symphony guest conductor Mr. Sewell will speak as he conducts, giving background information, musicology, and notes on harmony.  With his broad knowledge and stage presence, the dress rehearsal should be fairly comprehensive.

Please note that the dress rehearsal now begins at 11:00 am rather than 1:00pm

Saturday, October 8, 2016.  8:30 - 10:30am. for course, followed by symphony dress rehearsal 11:00 - 1:00 pm.

The morning class will be in Senior Center in SLO.  The concert rehearsal will be in the Christopher Cohan Center in the PAC at Cal Poly.

Silsby Eastman (Sandy) grew up and spent his working life in the Los Angeles area before moving to Pismo Beach.  He has taught at Cuesta and Allan Hancock Colleges and has been playing bassoon, baritone saxophone, and bridge as often as possible.  After graduating from Occidental College and Indiana University, he studied conducting bassoon with Walter Ritchie and conducting with Lauris Jones and Richard Lert.  He served as a bandsman in the Air Force and taught in San Bernardino, La Canada, Paramount and Agoura Hills.  He is also a former member of the Long Beach Coterie Sinfonique, the Pasadena Community Orchestra and the Topanga Symphony.
