All American Pops Concert

Submitted By Susan L. Rose

The Fremont Symphony will present its annual Pops Concert featuring Aileen Chanco, who joins the orchestra, performing Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.

Chanco is a frequent soloist, recitalist and chamber musician; she has performed solo's with orchestras nationwide including the San Francisco Symphony, Boston Pops, Shreveport Symphony Orchestra, the Santa Cruz Symphony and Berkeley Symphony. An avid chamber musician, Chanco is founding Artistic Director of Music at the Mission at Mission San Jose.

She has made several recordings, including "Images of Three Centuries," produced by Con Brio. Aileen won one of the Fremont Symphony's Young Artist awards in 1979, when she was 11. She received both her BM and MM degrees from the Julliard School.

The concert will also feature singers from StarStruck Theatre singing selections from "Guys and Dolls," which they will be performing this summer in the Ohlone Amphitheater. Selections include: "Marry the Man Today," "Sit Down," and "You're Rockin' the Boat. Other selections in the concert are highlights from Richard Rogers' South Pacific, a Stephen Sondheim Medley, Bernstein's "On the Town," and Symphonic Impressions from Wilson's "The Music Man."

One piece will be conducted by guest Conductor, Ted Bresler, who won the chance to conduct last fall at the New York, New York fundraiser. Bresler is a former President of the Board of the Fremont Symphony.
