Firelands Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of conductor Carl Topilow, offers a season of musical variety, including nationally renowned guest musicians, familiar classics and popular favorites. Each event will feature a 30-minute "Conversation with the Conductor" one hour before the concert.
FSO is also pleased to announce each new season subscriber may obtain a companion season subscription for half price (plus a $5 processing fee).
In addition to their scheduled performances, FSO School of the Arts classes offer lessons with experienced instructors who are dedicated to their students and strive to encourage each pupil to reach his or her creative potential. Private lessons are available throughout the summer and school year for piano, violin, flute, voice and music theory. Students may start at any time but must commit to a semester. Lessons are offered for 30, 45 or 60 minutes.
Art-Tastic! classes are under way for students ages 5-12. The next session begins Feb. 6, and kids are invited to unleash their creative genius by creating their own masterpieces with drawing, painting and polymer clay.
Creative Kids Art Workshop returns in November with professional artist Judy Aldrich. These fun, themed workshops introduce a large variety of creative materials. Each student makes multiple, high-quality projects in each workshop, and small class size is guaranteed.
Kindermusik with the Schmenks will be offered again in the summer of 2010. Kindermusik is the world's leading music and movement class for newborns to 7-year-olds. Children are introduced to an exciting musical world filled with singing, instrumentation, rhythm and creative movement.
