Pontiac Bay Symphony
The theme of the concert was “How the West Was Won” and it naturally was music from western movies, television and two pieces from the pen of Aaron Copland. We heard music from The Magnificent Seven, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly by Morricone, High Noon and the Wild Wild West and Copland’s Billy the Kid in the first half. After intermission music from How the West Was Won, Wyatt Earp and Copland’s Hoedown. A member of the Seattle Opera Chorus sang two numbers, High Noon and Rawhide. It was a terrific concert with a good audience. The orchestra gets better every time we hear it. They are to be congratulated. They’re getting a good experience at a fairly young age.
And then we left the concert to find that I had locked the keys in the car. But that’s another story.
