The following is a brief article about our Masterworks 4 performance highlighted in the Summer 2016 edition of Symphony Magazine: The Magzine of the league of American Orchestras
Pairing orchestra performances with images-moving or still-is a popular concert format, and the Fort Collins Symphony in Colorado gave this idea a local twist for its March 5 concert. Community members were invited to submit photos featuring the natural beauty and culture of northern Colorado, with winning shots shown during the orchestra’s performances of Richard Meyer’s A Fiddler’s Fancy and Calvin Custer’s Central Coach Special. As Music Director Wes Kinney led the orchestra, the ten winning photographers’ images were shown in a display created by multimedia artist Nicholas Bardonnay. During the performance, the audience voted for their favorite three images, which were framed and presented to the photographers at the orchestra’s May concert.
