Concert No. 2, plus 3rd Annual Silent Auction

Sunday, February 14, 2016, 7:00 p.m.

Tualatin Presbyterian Church, 9230 SW Siletz Drive, Tualatin, Oregon 97062 (map).

Mark Perlman, Conductor and Music Director

Tualatin Valley Symphony presented its second performance of the season, Epic Romance, which included works by Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saëns, and Brouwer. Our very own Marlène Cassar, harpist, was featured on the Saint-Saëns piece, Morceau de Concert. Ms. Cassar studied at the Conservatory of Music d’Avignon in France under Maryvonne Dupire and Reine Lequerrec, and really made the music come alive in this brilliant work!

The symphony’s 3rd Annual Silent Auction was also held this evening. Items bid on included beach getaways, cultural events tickets, and sports memorabilia, among others. Proceeds from the auction help us pay for various expenses such as sheet music rental, advertising and website-related costs, and more. Many congratulations to the happy winners, announced at the performance!
