Details of Symphony In Glen Orchestra and the Ticket Luck value
The Symphony In Glen Orchestra, whose membership is equally divided between men and women, sets wages in agreement with the AFM Local 47 Professional Musicians Union. Gifted young musicians are often invited to play with the orchestra. The symphony orchestra also organizes a special Symphony In The Glen Free Concert program which is held at the Old Zoo Picnic Area's Griffith Park.
Symphony In The Glen was formed by Arthur B Rubinstein, a fabled TV and film composer in 1993. The symphony's mission then was to help nourish a new generation of classical musicians and music lovers. It is a mission the orchestra has been highly successful in, and continues to pursue even today.
The Symphony In Glen Orchestra is based at Los Feliz/Griffith park and is an organization that aims at creating a sense of community in its area, by playing a series of outdoor classical music concerts. Maestro Rubinstein himself leads the professional orchestra, which has been performing its landmark series of concerts at Griffith Park since 1994. Some of their special concerts include the Out of the Ashes benefit concert held at the Old Zoo Picnic Area following the fire in 2007 that destroyed more than eight hundred acres of parkland.
Yet another amazing concert by the Glen orchestra is the Fantastic Creatures concert, which is held in collaboration with the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association and in which eight hundred children from schools in Los Angeles are introduced to the animal kingdom and nature through symphonic music. One of the highlights of this program is the Saint-Saens Carnival of the Animals in which third grade students from The Accelerated School write and read animal poems. The program ends with an actual field trip in which the schoolchildren have a chance to look at animals in the zoo.
In 2009, Symphony In The Glen held its first concert in front of the Griffith Observatory, as part of the latter's Cosmic Conjunction event. This was part of the International Year of Astronomy celebrations and it featured a performance of Rubinstein's Observations. It was narrated by none other than Leonard Nimoy, famous for playing Spock in the Star Trek TV series and movies. This amazing concert was sponsored by Friends of the Observatory and was held again after two days due to the popular response. This time around, the concert was organized in collaboration with The Greek Theatre and Nederlander Concerts, to the joy of the three thousand schoolchildren who saw it. The concert has also been released as a recording, titled Observations.
These are but some of the many concerts and concert recordings under the belt of Symphony In The Glen. Even today, two decades after the symphony's founding, it continues its tradition of organizing events for children and families. Members of the community and greater Los Angeles have had nothing but praise for them and the fruits of their outreach activities are shown by the fact that one third of their audience is often made up of children. The symphony has also introduced pre-concert activities, for parents and children, which make a Glen concert a delight.
