Carson City Symphony seeks string players for ‘seasons’ concert

Nevada Appeal staff report

Stephanie Sant’Ambrogio will be Carson City Symphony’s guest violin soloist in the group’s third concert this season.

The Carson City Symphony will begin rehearsals for its third concert of the 2014-15 season from 7 to 9:15 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 7, in the band room at Carson High School.

The program features eight seasons — "The Four Seasons" by Antonio Vivaldi and "The Four Seasons" by Astor Piazzolla — with guest violin soloist Stephanie Sant'Ambrogio, director of the Orchestral Career Studies graduate program and associate professor of violin and viola at the University of Nevada, Reno.

The concert, planned for March 1, will also include Vaughan Williams' English Folk Song Suite for woodwinds, brass and percussion.

String players, especially violinists and violists, who would like to play are asked to contact the Symphony at 775-883-4154.

The Symphony, conducted by David Bugli, is a volunteer orchestra of about 55 players who perform music from the 15th to 21st centuries. It is open to string players at any time without audition and to other instrumentalists when positions are available.
