Symphony in the Valley to honor Mom

Symphony in the Valley honors Mom with its annual Mother’s Day concert at 2:30 p.m. today at the Glenwood Springs High School auditorium.The event will spotlight the second annual Youth Concerto Competition winners – Yale Work, Connor O’Meara, Collin Stewart and Sophie Sakson – along with the 65-member volunteer community orchestra. Immediately after the competition, Sakson, who tied for third place with Collin Stewart, knew she nailed her performance of J.S. Bach and flashed a confident smile.”Bach is my favorite composer because of his Baroque style,” said Sakson, of Carbondale. “When I play it, I feel I’m at a party. The rhythm is ever-changing, and it’s so very dramatic.”Concert organizer Marice Doll said the 13th annual concert, led by conductor and artistic director Wendy Larson and associate conductor John Bokram, is one of the symphony’s biggest of the year.”It’s our most crowded concert,” she said. “It becomes the true family affair.”Tickets are available at the door for $10 for adults; $25 per family; $5 for youth age 3-18; and $8 for seniors 70 and up.
