The Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra (BSO) opens its new season this week and celebrates its 80th anniversary. One person who appears to be particularly looking forward to the event is Bryan Burrow, interim executive director at BSO, who said:
“I have to say, we’re very excited about the 80th birthday for the Bakersfield Symphony. It’s pretty incredible that this orchestra has been around for so many years, through so many economic crises.”
Begun as a community program night class, the orchestra formally became the Bakersfield Symphony in 1932. After a brief hiatus for World War II, the orchestra reconvened in 1946.
The orchestra celebrates its birthday with a performance of Hector Berlioz’s Hungarian March, Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 in B minor, and Edvard Grieg’s Concerto in A minor – selections from its first concert in 1932.
Celebrating with the symphony this Saturday is clarinetist Mary Moore, who is often referred to as Lou Gehrig because, like Gehrig, she has never missed a concert—not in 53 years. Moreover, she has only missed one rehearsal, for her son’s wedding. When she first began playing clarinet with the symphony there were nearly 50 musicians. Today, that number has increased to nearly 70 musicians, most of whom are local.
The BSO might want to consider using brochure printers and stationery printers to create souvenirs of its milestone year. The opening concert will be performed at 8:00 pm this Saturday, October 6 at the Rabobank Theater, 1001 Truxtun Avenue, Bakersfield. Tickets are $34 – $50. For more information call (800) 745-3000.
