The members of the Cherokee Symphony Orchestra and its Board of Directors are looking forward with great anticipation to the 2012-2013 concert season - the 56th year for this jewel in Cherokee's crown.
The Cherokee Symphony, under the direction of Maestro Lee Thorson since 1981, is a 60-member orchestra which provides the community with the highest quality musical entertainment while also giving musicians in the area a semi-professional outlet for their talents.
The ever-popular Pops Concert will be the first concert of the 2012-2013 season, at 4 p.m. Sunday in the Cherokee Community Center.
Guest piano soloist James Johnson, a Steinway artist, will play with the Symphony. Johnson has a distinguished international reputation through recordings and performance, and he has been described as having a "spellbinding technique." James is Professor of Music at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
Anyone who is interested in becoming a member of the Symphony Orchestra should contact Maestro Thorson at 712-732-1497 to arrange an audition.
