I attended the first performance of the Parker Symphony Orchestra on Sunday at the PACE Center. That's right! Parker CO has their own symphony orchestra for crying out loud! I thought it was really an awesome performance and hope that someday most of Parker gets to experience it first-hand. I thought the conductor was first rate, and the first violin guy was exceptional. The two even traded places for a special Four Seasons/Vivaldi performance and you'd never know the difference...either one could fit into either role! I've never seen that before.
The Parker Symphony Orchestra has several shows planned throughout the year, each with different themes. Next up is the Christmas show on December 7th with the Legend High School choir! I gotta see how they cram a symphony and 100 kids on the same stage!
