Dear BCO Supporter,
The BCO is ready to launch its 2016-2017-concert season. We are very excited about the music that we are bringing to you our patron and audience. For the fall concert, the BCO will play some of my favorite orchestral arrangements that are found in our music library from over the past years. The fall concert will feature our Concert Master Dr. Kurt Sprenger. This promises to be a very entertaining concert. For Christmas, the BCO will play a mixture of season favorites. This concert always fills up, so come early and get a good seat. For spring, I am very thrilled to bring to you, our audience a major oratorio, a work for orchestra and chorus, combining the Brazos Chamber Orchestra and Brazos Chorale in a performance of ‘Elijah’ by Felix Mendelssohn. We will be performing sections of this beautiful work. This will be a music event for our area. Major oratorio’s of this magnitude are usually reserved for the big cities; however, we will be bringing this performance to you, our audience.
So you can see, that this coming 2016-2017 concert series will be something you will want to put on your calendar, come to the concerts and tell your family and friends to do the same. This upcoming concert series cannot be performed without your help. You are that important to the BCO. As you know, we do not charge admission to our concerts, however, the concerts are not free, and we have expenses we have to cover. So, we need your help to continue bringing to you, our audience, live quality orchestra music.
Please join your fellow BCO patrons by giving a donation to the orchestra so that we can continue to bring live orchestra music to our area and help us on our way towards another great season of music.
