Sponsorship Spotlight: Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphonic Orchestra

posted 2/26/2013 in General

We have talked in the past about Lincoln Savings Bank's role as a community bank and how we view our responsibility of helping the communities we serve grow. One way that we engage and interact with our communities is through sponsoring various events or groups. This month, we would like to highlight the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony Orchestra and provide a preview of what is left of their 2012-13 concert season.
The theme for the current concert season is "Color Your Life," and audiences have already been treated to the classic concerts influenced by original programming, imaginative collaborations and fascinating twists that have become a standard over the last decade. This year's concerts have already featured music from famous composers such as Beethoven and Tchaikovsky.
Here is a look at upcoming concerts the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony Orchestra will be presenting at the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center:
  • "Sounds of Iowa," March 2- a performance of works all inspired by the dramatic landscapes of the Midwest. The music will be accompanied by images of this scenery taken by nature photographer Bill Will, as well as Iowa-related, farm and agriculture related poetry from notable poets like James Hearst.
  • "Bach at Easter," April 6- featuring the talents of WCFSO soloist and the University of Northern Iowa Cantorei. Bach's Easter cantatas and Brandenburg Concerto, works called "sublime" and "a glimpse of the epic achievement of one's life works" by director Jason Weinberger, will be presented.
  • "The Planets, Reimagined," April 27- a unique collaboration between artist Gary Kelley and the WCFSO brings a re-imagined take on Gustav Holst's "The Planets."
We strongly encourage you to take in the beautiful sounds and complementary sights of the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony Orchestra. They are a wonderful talent to have in the area, and you will not be disappointed when the lights come up at the end of the show.
