Matthew Savery — Music Director and Conductor Fresh on the heels of what has been called his “tour-de-force” Carnegie Hall debut in June of 2015, American conductor Matthew Savery enjoys an everexpanding reputation for his multi-faceted career as an electrifying performer, dedicated orchestra builder and charismatic teacher. Mr. Savery is currently serving as Music Director and Conductor of the Bozeman (MT) Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Choir as well as the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra. Having collaborated with some of the most exciting artists of our time, such as Jon Nakamatsu, Alexander Markov, The Canadian Brass, Carol Wincenc, Roberto Diaz, Andres Cardenes, Ryan Anthony, Eric Ruske, Judith Ingolfsson, and many more, Matthew Savery’s career has brought him to orchestras throughout the United States, Europe and Canada. He has led performances with the Boise, Dayton, Fort Wayne, Long Island and Naples philharmonics, Indianapolis, East Texas, El Paso, Greater Bridgeport (16 performances), Greater Lansing, Lake St. Clair, New Haven, Quad City, Saginaw Bay, Sioux City, Springfield (MA, MO and OH), South Dakota and Virginia symphony orchestras, Missouri Chamber Orchestra, Cape May Music Festival, Canada’s Victoria Symphony, Italy’s Orchestra Sinfonica di Bari, Turkey’s Presidential Symphony Orchestra, and the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine. While at the University of Michigan, Matthew Savery was the founding Music Director of the University Campus Chamber Orchestra; subsequently, he served as Music Director of the Comic Opera Guild of Ann Arbor. Along with his regular duties with the Bozeman Symphony, where his innovative subscription, family and children’s programming earns consistent praise - and sold-out houses, Matthew Savery has established an active commissioning program, bringing compelling new compositional voices to his orchestra and its audiences, among them: Kenneth Fuchs –Glacier (Concerto for Electric Guitar and Orchestra); Erik Santos –Karnak, ...in the Mines of Desire, Sun Road (Five Symphonic Dances for Orchestra); Elodie Lauten - Symphony 2001; James M. Stephenson, III - Concertino and Fanfare for Orchestra; Lowell Liebermann - Concerto for Clarinet. During his years with the orchestra, Mr. Savery has also presided over a ten-fold rate of financial growth, while regularly attracting over 3% of Bozeman’s metropolitan population to its concerts. Matthew Savery offers Montana’s schools a “Conductor in Residency” program that has accounted for dozens of hours per school year. He is much in demand as guest lecturer and in-school clinician. Mr. Savery is a recipient of the Eugene and Sadie Power Award for the Performing Arts. In October 1998, he and the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra were the subjects of a special feature on “CBS Sunday Morning.” Since his appointment to the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra, Matthew Savery and his notable artistic and organizational skills have refocused the greater-Casper area’s attention on the orchestra with gratifying results, among them a dramatic elevation of the orchestra’s artistic achievement and the quality of its guest artists, a broadening of the scope of the performance repertoire, a 30% increase in attendance and a 35% increase in the budget. With enthusiastic board support, he has introduced children and family programming, the “Music on the Move” outreach program, and his “Conductor in Residency” program for the public schools. Of special pride to the entire organization was Maestro Savery’s development of the “Wyoming Symphony Orchestra Young Artist Competition”— the first of it’s kind in the State of Wyoming — geared towards both high school and college students. A native of Western Massachusetts, just “down the road” from the famed Tanglewood Music Festival, Matthew Savery graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music and received his Master of Music Degree from the University of Michigan, where he was the recipient of a Teaching Assistantship to the prestigious studio of Gustav Meier and to which he returned in 2001 and 2006 as a Visiting Guest Lecturer. In addition to Mr. Meier, his principal teachers have been Pascal Verrot and Frank Battisti. Matthew makes his home in Bozeman, Montana, with his wife Soprano Catherine Viscardi Savery, and their two year old son Adam.


A Letter from the Music Director and Conductor

Dear Friends, Welcome to another fantastic performance by YOUR Bozeman Symphony. I’m so grateful you have chosen to celebrate the Holidays with us. We promise to put you in the mood for the season! On a personal note, it’s great to be back at work. Yes, I had a little life incident get in the way, but luckily it was something that could be fixed, and is now all behind me. A quick note of thanks to everyone at the Symphony who helped “fill in the cracks” while I was away, my Board of Directors for their incredible support throughout, and to the fantastic doctors and nurses that patched me up and helped me heal. They displayed the very essence of professionalism, and I’m deeply grateful to them all. Lastly, but most importantly, my deepest thanks to my lovely wife Catherine who, unsurprisingly, proved to be a rock star throughout the last few months. I love you very much honey! Tonight we are thrilled to introduce to you the many talents of Anne Runolfsson. She has a LOT of singing to do in this show which provides us all the chance to experience her wide range of gifts. I love every chart on this concert and I’m sure you will too. From all of us at the Bozeman Symphony, we wish you and yours the very happiest of Holidays and we hope the New Year brings us all great fortune and happiness. Enjoy!

The Underwriters We are fortunate to live in the beauty of the valleys and mountains that surround us. We are doubly blessed to have in our small community the magnificent music brought to us by the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra and Choir. This remarkable achievement is due to the unusual number of highly talented musicians living among us, and to their selfless dedication to the orchestra and choir. We all benefit in some way from our orchestra and choir. Those who hear them benefit the most, but all of us benefit from the way they enrich the entire community. We, in turn, owe our orchestra and choir our generous and continuing support. For this reason, our Underwriters have committed to contributing a minimum of $1,200 to the Bozeman Symphony this year (the equivalent of $100 each month, exclusive of tickets or other benefits) and, if circumstances permit, in future years as well. Please join the Bozeman Symphony Society in thanking the Underwriters for their ongoing commitment to the Symphony and its wellbeing, and consider becoming a member of our Underwriters Group to help provide a stable and secure base of funding for our orchestra for years to come. Please contact us at 585-9774 for information about becoming an Underwriter.

Special Guest: Anne Runolfsson

Anne Runolfsson recently completed a two year run on Broadway as the tempestuous diva, Carlotta Giudacelli in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera, the longest running show in Broadway history. Prior to that, she made an absolute splash in Victor/Victoria as standby to Dame Julie Andrews and Liza Minelli. She performed the title role over 120 times to great acclaim and went on to recreate the role in the National Tour which began in Seattle and Houston. Other Broadway and National Tour credits include: the role of Gretta Conroy in James Joyce’s The Dead, Fantine in Les Miserable, Roxane in Cyrano-The Musical, Lili in The Secret Garden, and Aspects of Love. Off-Broadway and Regional credits include: Listen to My Heart (Studio 54), Rags, Jack’s Holiday, Cather County, A Little Night Music, Showboat, and Funny Girl. She has appeared as a soloist at Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall (with Tenor Jose Carreras), The Kennedy Center, Town Hall, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, The National Theater in Iceland, Rainbow and Stars, The Russian Tea Room, Bay Street Theater, The Pump Room, The Cinegrill, The 92nd st. Y, and with The National Symphony, The Philly Pops, The Boston Pops, The Jerusalem Symphony, The Orchestra of St. Lukes, The National Symphony of Canada, The Hong Kong Philharmonic, The Cincinnati Pops, Oklahoma City Philharmonic, The Buffalo Philharmonic, and the Symphony orchestras of San Francisco, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Indianapolis, Toronto, Milwaukee, Utah, Detroit, Dallas, Houston, Columbus, San Diego, Colorado, Minnesota, and St. Louis among many others. Her many recordings include the International Cast Album of Les Miserables, Listen to My Heart, Broadway Musicals of 1933, and her solo debut recording, At Sea, which was critically acclaimed nationwide.

Elise Donohue: A Remembrance

On May 21, 2015 the Bozeman Symphony, as well as all of us who love this community and value its artistic and cultural vibrancy, lost a true friend and champion. Elise Donohue: friend, neighbor, and generous underwriter of many of the things we value in our community, passed away that day, leaving us all in shock and mourning. Elise Rosenberry Donohue, a Minnesota native and great granddaughter of Frederick Weyerhaeuser, the timber baron, spent 39 years cattle ranching and raising horses on her ranch west of Clyde Park. In many ways, she was worldly and sophisticated but at core, she was modest and down-to-earth, out pitching hay and feeding her horses on cold, windy Montana mornings, and joining friends for regular lunches at the Clyde Park Tavern. Although she received most of her medical care in Bozeman or out of state, she recently made a very generous gift to Livingston HealthCare toward the building of its new hospital and clinic. The reason? Because she wanted to make sure that her rancher friends and neighbors would have ready access to high quality health care. In addition to supporting the Bozeman Symphony, Elise almost singlehandedly rescued the Ellen Theatre from the wrecking ball. She was a major underwriter of Montana Shakespeare in the Parks and Shakespeare in the Schools, and a significant supporter of the Museum of the Rockies, the Intermountain Opera, and the Kaleidoscope Youth Theater among many other organizations that serve our community. Elise was also a major donor to Montana State University, including a lead gift toward the University’s American Indian Center. Her friends and neighbors, without exception, loved Elise and will miss her. But those of us who knew of her many quiet and generous contributions to the arts are deeply saddened. We have lost one of our greatest patrons. We will miss Elise more than we can say; she was a great soul. Denis J. Prager Member, Board of Directors
