We were at the Racine Symphony Summer Pops Concert Friday night at Festival Hall where we celebrated the symphony's 85th season. The program was musicals and film music, and was tremendous.
The last number was The Man of La Macha's "Impossible Dream." Maestro Pasquale Laurino saved this number for last. He related the "Impossible Dream" to the Racine Symphony Orchestra, how in 1932, Frederick Schulte created an orchestra that would survive the times and grow, and as we know, get better every year.
It is the impossible dream, our gem in Racine, offering a vast selection of music to Racinians of all ages. We love our symphony, our meaning it belongs to everyone in Racine. It is ours to relish and enjoy, to find enrichment and beauty in their music, to feel your spirit soar with each crescendo and your heartache with the haunting sound of the bassoon or a single, mournful violin.
When you read an ad for a concert, whether it be the Summer Pops, Christmas, Masterworks Series or fifth-grade concert, reach out and join us and enjoy for yourself the spectacular music of our gem, the Racine Symphony Orchestra.
