Next concert:  April 30, 3 p.m., Foothills Performing Arts and Civic Center

Guest Conductor just announced: Robin Linaberry.

Robin Linaberry works frequently as a conductor, adjudicator, clinician, private teacher, mentor, and published author. He has retired from fulltime teaching after thirty-five years of distinguished work, including as Director of Music for Maine-Endwell Schools, Head Director for the American Music Abroad "Red Tour," and former Adjunct for Ithaca College, Binghamton University and SUNY-Broome CC.  Robin is a state Chair (NY) for The National Band Association, and conductor of the award-winning Southern Tier Concert Band.

 He will be conducting Clifton Williams' (1923-1976) Symphonic Dance No. 3. "Fiesta" which was originally written as part of a suite to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the San Antonio Symphony. 

 "Fiesta is an evocation of the excitement and color of the city’s numerous Mexican celebrations. The modal characteristics, rhythms, and finely woven melodies depict what Williams called “the pageantry of Latin-American celebration – street bands, bull fights, bright costumes, the colorful legacy of a proud people.”
