Folsom Symphony’s Winter Wonderland

345

The Folsom Lake Symphony and the Folsom Lake Civic Ballet created two beautiful performances at the Jill Solberg Performing Arts Theater this weekend, on Saturday evening and for the Sunday matinee.

Michael Neumann, the Symphony’s music director and conductor made an interesting and varied selection of music and the audience really appreciated the effort.

Soloists for the concerto were Anita Felix and Alex Robul of the Folsom Lake Symphony, and Ray Anthony Trujillo and Drew Cylinder of the Sacramento Youth Symphony Premier Orchestra.

In the second half of the concert, the orchestra performed selections from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Ballet with guest artists from the Folsom Civic Ballet and Adrianne Dellorco.
