Symphony Guild kicking off season with Prelude Party

Sept. 9 event is chance to meet members 'behind the scenes'

by By Dolores Fox Ciardelli

The Livermore-Amador Symphony, under the direction of conductor Lara Webber, has scheduled its 2021-22 season with its first performance at Brilliance at the Bankhead on Sept. 11.

But first, the Livermore-Amador Symphony Guild will launch the season with a Prelude Party at 4 p.m. Sept. 9 at the Springtown Homeowners Clubhouse, 931 Larkspur Drive in Livermore. The event includes entertainment by the Livermore School of Dance and light refreshment, and no reservations are required.

The Prelude Party, which has no charge, is being held as a chance for people to learn more about the guild and meet the members "behind the scenes." Activities of the guild include producing and distributing concert season brochures, holding fundraisers, and planning and producing the annual pops concerts.

On Sept. 11, the Livermore-Amador Symphony will accompany Vanessa Williams as she stars in Brilliance at the Bankhead, the annual gala fundraiser to support activities at the Bankhead Theater and the Bothwell Arts Center.

Then the season's schedule includes the following:

* Sipping with the Symphony at Page Mill Winery at 5 p.m. Sept. 23

* Pops Concert in front of the Bankhead Theater at 3 p.m. Oct. 23, sponsored by the Guild with no need for tickets but donations appreciated.

* Family Concert with the Symphony at 3 p.m. Dec. 4, a free annual event.

* Symphonic Sounds of the Season at 8:15 p.m. Dec. 4, with harpist Constance Koo.

* The Brilliance of Youth at 8 p.m. Feb. 12, presenting winners of the Competition for Young Musicians

* Vibrant Voices, at 8 p.m. April 23.

* Building a New World on June 4.
