1- 106 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Aug. 8 -Aug. 14, 2003 Mid-Atlantic Symphony tuning up for seventh season Under the energetic baton of artistic director and conductor Donald C. Buxton, the Mid-At- lantic Symphony Orchestra has matured into a premier regional symphony that brings high quality classical music to shore locales. Conceived by a group of local res- idents in 1997, the nonprofit Mid- Atlantic Symphony Orchestra (MSO) is preparing its seventh season of concerts around Del- malta. The MSO is the shore's only symphony composed solely of professional musicians. It is man- aged by an all-volunteer organiza- tion, the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra Society. The MSO per- forms in venues including Easton, Chestertown, Ocean City and Ocean Pines, Md. and George- town. An affiliate of the orchestra, the Mariner String .Quartet, pres- ents chamber music concerts. The orchestra and the quartet also reach out to schools and youfig people to afford them opportuni- ties to become acquainted with classical music. Two very accomplished violin- ists, Nicholas Currie and Phanos Dymiotis, recently joined the Mariner String Quartet's founding musicians, violist Michael Strauss and cellist Adam Gonzalez. The four quartet members also serve as principal musicians for their in- strument groups in the Mid-At- lantic Symphony Orchestra. The Symphony's 2003-04 sea- son will begin with Mariner String Quartet concerts at 8 p.m., Friday, Sept. 12, at the Avalon Theater in Easton; 8 p.m., Satur- day, Sept. 13, at the Prince The- ater in Chestertown, Md.; at 2 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 14, at Delaware Technical & Communi- ty College in Georgetown; and 8 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 14, at the Community Church in Ocean Pines, Md. The Mariner String Quartet will also present special concerts in March with noted classical gui- tarist Eliot Fisk, a prot6g6 of An- dres Segovia. The full orchestra will present symphony concerts in October and December and February and April in 2004. The October con- certs will feature Rossini's "Bar- ber of Seville" overture, Schu- bert's Symphony No. 9, "The Great," and more. The December concerts will present a perform- ance of Handel's "Messiah" with the noted Bach to the Future vocal ensemble. Concert goers have repeatedly inquired about recordings of the MSO, but the orchestra's nonprof- it nature and need to fund operat- ing expenses did not afford it the resources to produce one. Thanks to a private benefactor in Ocean Pines who advanced funds for the project, and much effort to see it through to completion, the orches- tra's first compact disc recording, "Meet the MSOI" has just become available. Professionally recorded and mastered and closely supervised by orchestra artistic director and conductor Buxton, the CD cap- tures a recent live concert by the orchestra including Schubert's Symphony No. 5, selections by Beethoven, Franck and Tchaikovsky and more. Visit the Festival Continued from page 105 will be staged including an award winning interactive musical sci- ence adventure show featuring Wendy Whitten and Flumpa the Tree Frog and Lewes clown duo Happy-Go-Lucky. All the shows will be free. Adjacent to the city dock in 1812 Park, Lewes' La Rosa Negra Restaurant will stage a seafood tasting. Beginning at 11 a.m. until ap- proximately 2 p.m., seafood spe- cialties will be available for pur- chase.
