Once again, Lynne will join the Windsor Symphony as guest Principal Oboe for a pops concert at the Chrysler Theatre. Music Director John Morris Russell takes the stage to lead a program which will include many famous works from the worlds of opera, theater and movies, made famous by Mario Lanza. The program includes music from Italian in Algiers Overture and music from William Tell by Rossini, selections from South Pacific, operatic highlights from Turandot, Il Trovatore and Cavalleria Rusticana, and many selections from Broadway and the silver screen. Tenor Kip Wilborn and the Windsor Symphony Orchestra Chorus join us for this concert. Soprano Katie Kerr, finalist for “How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?“ will also make a special appearance.
Lynne is excited to perform as substitute Principal Oboe for the Windsor Symphony Orchestra season premiere concert series. Included on the program is one of her favorite symphonic works – Mozart’s Symphony #40.
Grammy-nominated Cuban/Latin band Tiempo Libre will present an exciting concert with the Toledo Symphony on September 20th. Lynne will play English Horn on this concert, which includes George Gershwin’s “Cuban Overture” and Ricardo Lorenz’s “Rumba Sinfonica” – described as “a sound travelogue exploring the full possibilities of a Cuban band and symphony orchestra performing together.”
I had a lot of fun playing in the orchestra for the Detroit concert of The Music of Led Zeppelin again this year. This is a very fun show – the band is excellent, and they put on a very exciting performance. The audience absolutely loved it. If this tour comes to your town, I highly recommend checking it out.
I took a few pictures before and during the show. I was sitting just behind and to the left of the (amazing!) percussionist Powell Randolph, so I have some great pictures from my point of view.
I just set the covered camera on my lap and clicked a few shots off – I didn’t have the ability to look at what I was shooting, as the goal was to no distract anyone onstage or in the audience. Even the people sitting right next to me on stage didn’t realize I was taking pictures. Considering how I took the pictures, some of them are pretty good. Enjoy!
