Tehachapi Symphony Orchestra's Concert, July 2

The Tehachapi Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. David Newby, and the Tehachapi Symphonic Chorus led by Sandra Adams will celebrate the Fourth of July with a stirring program of show tunes, movie music, patriotic songs, marches, light classical and pops music. The concert will be on Sunday, July 2 at Country Oaks Baptist Church located at 20915 Schout Rd., in Tehachapi.

Relax from 4 to 6 p.m. to special tunes brought to you by your very own Tehachapi Symphony Orchestra and Tehachapi Symphonic Chorus. Downbeat for the Star-Spangled Banner is at 4 p.m., followed by the Armed Forces Salute. If you are a member of, or a veteran of any of the armed services, you are invited to stand when you hear that service's song. In recognition and thanks for all your service, the Tehachapi Symphony Orchestra would like to invite everyone to join us in saluting these brave men and women from wherever you may be.

There will be a World Premiere Performance of three pieces arranged by TSO members. Andrew Barth, the symphony's French Horn player, has arranged "The Launch" from the movie Apollo 13. Barth is a mechanical engineer at Scaled, but for fun he loves listening to movie music and arranging it for the orchestra. Charles Fernandez plays bassoon as a guest musician with the symphony. The orchestra will be playing his "Tribute to Bob Hope" and "Around the world in 80 Days" medley.
