On Sunday November 23rd, two member of our chapter, Isaiah Roggow and Marie Roussel, volunteered for the Redwood City Symphony. The volunteers helped to sell cookies and coffee during the event. Funds will be donated to the symphony.
Isaiah shares with the blog his insights and highlights of the event:
I always enjoy going to the Redwood Symphony, it really is and always has been a well organized and competently ran event. Their themes are always well-thought out and consistent. The musicians are top shelf and could easily be found at any of the 'big-super-prestigious" orchestras in the nation in which I have been in the audience.
This time around, Redwood Symphony honored several renowned Jewish composers at the Beth Am synagogue in Los Altos Hills. The first of two highlights for me was the playing of the suite for the movie "The Hours." The second was accompanied choral singing of traditional psalms that have been passed down by the Jewish people for uncounted generations. It was a truly delightful event; the Redwood Symphony continued to bring high quality orchestral music to the Bay Area once again. Bravo!
