Music Inspired By Art

Conducted by S. Annette Jurcevic

The Benzie Area Symphony Orchestra Presents
"Music Inspired by Art"
Conductor:  S. Annette Jurcevic
August 23rd, 2015
Benzie Central High School Auditorium
7:00 p.m.

The Benzie Area Symphony Orchestra is in its 35th year of bringing great musical works to our community orchestra and to its diverse audience.  None of the members of the orchestra are paid and its the passion for the music that is evident from every musician in the "BASO" that allows the creation of musical moments.

Come on August 23rd to the Benzie Central High School Auditorium at 9300 Homestead Road, Benzonia, MI 49616 at 7:00 p.m. to experience our theme for the evening, "Music Inspired by Art."

The musicians will be under the capable baton of S. Annette Jurcevic.  Ms. Jurcevic is a resident of Ludington, MI and also is the founder of the "Shoreline
Symphony" of Muskegon, MI.   Ms. Jurcevic is auditioning along with two other candidates to be the "BASO" conductor and musical advisor.  Under Ms. Jurcevic's direction, you will hear works by Johann Strauss II, Massanet, Rachmaninoff, Mussorgsky, Livingston, and Anderson.  Along with the musical exposure you will experience an added bonus of an audiovisual intimacy with the harmonies of the music.

Theresa A. Kelley, Operations Manager of the "BASO."
