NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT On behalf of the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors, I would like to welcome you, and thank you for joining us for the 20172018 season. Since 1954, the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra has shared the exceptional talents of skilled and gifted musicians to sellout crowds – and this year is no exception! The performances we have planned promise to deliver a memorable experience that you are certain to enjoy, highlighted by a celebration of Cheyenne’s 150th anniversary, a Halloween-themed concert, Baroque in the Barn, and many other audience and orchestra favorites. We are excited to offer a tenth concert outside of our traditional repertoire – a family-oriented matinee in conjunction with our October Symphony Spooktacular performance. The family–friendly matinee concept was introduced in our 2016-2017 season as part of our community outreach initiative, and was met with great success. We are thrilled to be able to share the joy of orchestral music with new audiences in addition to our longstanding patrons. The CSO is honored to have Maestro William Intriligator continuing to lead the Orchestra this season. Under his leadership, the Orchestra has pushed boundaries and delivered an outstanding product and experience for our audience. Thank you to William, the musicians, and the staff for your dedication to excellence. We believe that there is an inherent cultural and economic value in a vibrant arts community in Cheyenne and the surrounding areas. In addition to our concert series, we strive to support and grow the appreciation for the arts through our outreach and education programs. As a patron and supporter of the arts in Cheyenne, I would ask and encourage you to share the experience of attending a concert or one of our other events with your friends and family – they are sure to thank you for the introduction. Finally, and most importantly, we would like to thank you, our audience, for your ongoing patronage of the CSO. The delivery of world class orchestral performances would not be possible without your support through ticket sales, gala attendance, annual fund and adopt a musician donations, corporate sponsorships and guest artist underwriters. Your generosity has allowed this remarkable organization to grow and flourish, and will continue to do so for years to come. We look forward to sharing the experience of this extraordinary season with you all!

MUSIC DIRECTOR & CONDUCTOR Dr. William Intriligator A dynamic and passionate presence on the podium, William Intriligator currently serves as Music Director and Conductor of the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra in Wyoming and the Dubuque Symphony Orchestra in Iowa. Maestro Intriligator’s innovative programming, artistic leadership, and community collaborations have lead to great growth and success for both these orchestras. Originally from Santa Monica, California, Intriligator earned many accolades and honors as an oboist and graduated with highest honors in music from Princeton University. He then studied conducting in France and Germany and was Assistant Conductor of the Southwest German Radio Symphony Orchestra. He returned to the U.S. to earn his masters and doctoral degrees in orchestral conducting at the University of Minnesota, where he conducted a full production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute at age 23. During his years training in Minnesota, Intriligator was on the conducting staff of the Minnesota Orchestra, where he led that orchestra in youth concerts and new music readings, as well as assisting with subscription concerts and national tours. He was also an Assistant Conductor of the Minnesota Opera and a guest conductor of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, leading that orchestra for five seasons in educational concerts, family concerts, regional tours, and concerts of new music. Intriligator was a conducting fellow at the Aspen Music Festival for two summers and also attended the Pierre Monteux School for Conductors. As a guest conductor, he has conducted many distinguished orchestras across the country, including those of Honolulu, Houston, Minnesota, Richmond, Saint Paul, Savannah, Syracuse, and Tulsa. Last April, he made his European debut conducting the Orchestra Metropolitana di Bari in Italy. After the tremendous success of that concert, he was immediately re-engaged to conduct more performances with the orchestra in June. Intriligator resides in Dubuque with his wife Lisa and their four sons.


NOTE FROM THE MAESTRO Dear Friends, Welcome to another season of great music with the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra! I’m so excited. We have fantastic concerts scheduled all season long! We will be honoring the 150th anniversary of Cheyenne in September. We will show you that orchestras “invented” scary Halloween music in late October. In January, we will host a musical soirée with an overabundance of great melodies to intoxicate you. In March, we will perform much-loved classics by Beethoven, Brahms, and Vaughan Williams; and in April we will present a new trumpet concerto along with audience favorites by Tchaikovsky and Smetana. We will also ring in the “happiest time of the year” with a December holiday concert in collaboration with the Cheyenne Chamber Singers, the All-City Children’s Chorus, and the En Avant Dance Studio. This season, we once again end the season with our signature chamber music event, “Baroque in the Barn.” All season long, you will marvel at the virtuosity of our orchestra players and featured soloists. We are so lucky to have such a great orchestra here in Cheyenne! Thank you for attending our concerts and supporting the arts in our community! We pledge to meet or exceed your expectations and give you passionate and inspiring performances every time. Sincerely,

Dr. William Intriligator Music Director & Conductor Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra

CLASSIC CONVERSATIONS Sponsored by our Business Partners

Come Enhance Your Concert Experience! One hour before each Masterpiece Series concert Maestro Intriligator will present Classic Conversations, a unique musical experience in which he shares insights about the evening’s performance. The conductor may also be joined by the guest artist. The maestro will play recorded excerpts from the music that will be performed that evening, point out what the audience should listen for, give historical context in which the music was composed, and discuss the meaning behind the music. This information greatly adds to one’s appreciation and understanding of the performance. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions and make comments about the performance. We also invite you to read the program notes, which contain relevant biographical information about the composer, and other historical information about the music. Classic Conversations is a very popular event, which is demonstrated by the fact that the number of attendees has greatly increased through the years. Many concert-goers are convinced they enjoy the programs more by attending these sessions. An additional presentation, which takes place at noon on the Friday before each concert at Laramie County Library, is sponsored by all our Business Partners. Maestro Intriligator presents Lunch and Learn Classic Conversations, an informal and informative hour of musical conversation. This program is free and open to everyone, whether or not they have a concert ticket. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about the upcoming concert music that will be played, and have any questions answered. All are encouraged to bring lunch and a friend.

SYMPHONY COURTESIES Whether this is your first concert, or you are a seasoned veteran, you may have questions about the symphony atmosphere. Here are some frequently asked questions to help make your experience more enjoyable. When do I clap? Many works in classical music have three or more movements or sections. A short pause usually falls between each of them. It has become customary over time not to clap during these short pauses. After the last movement, applaud to your heart’s content. Still unsure? Don’t applaud until the Maestro faces the audience. May I bring electronics? Cell phones, pagers, and electronics should be turned off or set on vibrate before entering the theatre. Please contact the house manager before entering the theatre if emergency notification may be required. Please refrain from texting as it is distracting to other concert-goers. May I take pictures? No cell phone pictures and videos, or recording devices of any kind are permitted at any CSO performance unless prior permission is obtained from the symphony. Musical chairs? There may be empty seats around you during the concert. These seats likely belong to someone, and as a courtesy to these people and those around them, please do not sit in any seats that appear to be unoccupied. Are there accommodations for disabled patrons? Handicapped parking is available in the parking garage next to the Civic Center, and curb-to-seat assistance is available upon request at the box office. Handicapped seating is offered on the main floor. Patrons with oxygen tanks are urged to use quiet, continuous flow models if at all possible. Hearing impaired devices may be obtained at the box office. What if I arrive late or need to leave early? We recommend that you try to arrive no later than fifteen minutes before the concert is scheduled to begin. If you arrive after the concert has started, there are designated pauses between each piece. Unfortunately, some concerts have no late seating. If you have to leave before the end of the concert, please do so between program works. What’s in the air? Perfume and colognes can be enchanting, but the person next to you may be asthmatic or allergic. Please save those lovely aromas for less crowded areas, or go lightly with them. How’s my attire? Most concert-goers dress in business or business casual clothing. Some patrons will be a little more formal, while others might prefer to be a little more casual; it’s your choice.

MEET THE SYMPHONY FRIENDS ... supporting the CSO through hospitality, fundraising & outreach

Who are Symphony Friends? What do they do? The answers are as diverse as the CSO’s audience. But on its ymphony simplest level, the “Friends” are CSO volunteers who contribute riends their time, talent and energy to promote the Cheyenne Symphony. The Friends focus on outreach and hospitality by welcoming guests at each concert and fielding questions from newcomers about upcoming events. We also produce marketing and advertising materials such as the Tempo Magazine, a newsletter promoting each CSO concert. We bake cookies, house musicians during winter storms and provide transportation for guest artists. We also represent the CSO at events such as Superday, where we share information about next season’s lineup with the public. In July of 2016 the Friends hosted their first ever fundraiser for the symphony, a French-inspired wine-tasting event held at the Nagle-Warren Mansion. In 2017 the Friends hosted an Italian-inspired fundraiser at Little America. Spearheaded by member Wendy Owen, both events were an enormous success and went a long way to achieving the fundraising goal set by the Friends. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in volunteer work on behalf of the Cheyenne Symphony. The Friends meet on the last Thursday of the month at 5:30pm in a meeting room at the Laramie County Public Library. To join, or for more information, visit our table in the lobby, check out our Facebook page and our page on the CSO website, or call the office during business hours, at 307-778-8561.

CHEYENNE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Because community matters to our families and yours.



The Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra would like to extend its deepest gratitude for the generous support of the Elizabeth Tolerton Estate. Elizabeth Tolerton (1922-2013) was a highly respected dance teacher in Cheyenne for almost 55 years. Mrs. Tolerton began her dance career as a child in Germany; she met and married her husband Jess Tolerton during the US occupation of Germany following World War II. She began teaching dance lessons in Laramie, while Mr. Tolerton attended law school at the University of Wyoming. In 1952, the Tolertons moved to Cheyenne, with Elizabeth opening the Tolerton School of Ballet and Jess soon becoming a Municipal Judge. Over the course of more than five decades the Tolertons were supporters of all facets of performing arts in Cheyenne. The Tolertons believed in giving back to their community by donating freely of their time, talent, and treasure. In addition to running her dance school, Mrs. Tolerton Click click the bills are choreographed for numerous local productions including the paid Cheyenne Little Theater, the Cheyenne Melodrama, Laramie County Community College, and state beauty pageants. She was the chaperone for many years for the Miss Wyoming pageant, accompanying Miss Wyoming around the country and to Atlantic City.

EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH “Giving the Gift of Music” Programs More than 20 years ago, as the only professional performing arts organization in southern Wyoming, CSO embraced the opportunity to help educate youth and adults in the Cheyenne area. CSO’s educational programs are, in our budget class, among the most highly-developed in the nation according to industry studies. Our success is due to a strong network of dedicated staff, volunteers and a rare depth of collaboration with local teachers and administration. CSO’s educational programs include:

“It’s a GAS” (Guest Artists in the Schools) Students are motivated, inspired, and taught the virtue of discipline by guest artists visiting the classroom. Listening to and interacting with a professional artist helps students develop criteria for evaluating and achieving successful performances.

“YES!” (Youth Educational Symphony) CSO’s annual YES! Concerts bring 5-6th grade students from LCSD #1 and #2, parochial, private and home-schooled students to the Civic Center for 2 performances. Junior high and high school orchestra students also attend the concerts. CSO creates and distributes supporting educational materials to teachers prior to the event.

“It’s COOL” (Conductor of the Orchestra Leads) The conductor visits K-college music, band, and orchestra classes. Teaching students the importance of choosing an instrument they love to play and making it fun has been the priority of the Maestro’s visits. The conductor conveys lessons learned from sticking with an instrument through school and the value of those skills later in life. The conductor often provides feed-back on their performance, helping them to achieve greater musical results. CSO Music Director and Conductor William Intriligator teaches local students.


“Take a SEAT” (Students Enjoy a Ticket) This program allows young people to attend CSO concerts. Nearly 600 free tickets are distributed throughout the season to area music students. CSO also raises funds to subsidize concert admission for students and Matinee concert tickets are subsidized even further—$5 for students and $10 for adults—to encourage entire families to attend a kid-friendly concert with accessible repertoire and pre-concert activities, helping to nurture a new generation of concert-goers. “FUSE” (Fine Arts Unlocking Student Excellence) Recent research shows that skills developed in the music classroom can help students to achieve in other areas. FUSE programs reach students outside the music classroom and help them to make connections across the disciplines. Participants in these program and their families are invited to attend the concert at no cost. Art in Music – 8th–12th graders are challenged to create works of art inspired by music performed by CSO. Student art is displayed each January at the Civic Center. CSO recruits adjudicators with expertise in the field, who select winners and present prizes on stage at CSO’s January concert. Music in Words – CSO’s writing contest asks 3rd–4th grade students to write a creative response to music from one of the concerts. The submissions are displayed at the Civic Center during the March concert for the audience to enjoy. Winners are acknowledged on stage and Amazing sculpture created by printed in the program. local High School student for the 2017 Art in Music Program.

Musical Instrument Petting Zoo CSO provides an opportunity for younger children to see, touch, and even try the instruments of the orchestra. Instruments are provided by Niemann Music, and in partnership with local high school music programs, volunteer musicians demonstrate the instruments. A petting zoo is included in the family matinee pre-concert activities, and at other events throughout the year, such as the Musical Story Time at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, Paul Smith’s Children’s Village, reaching Pre–K–3rd grade students. Students try out instruments at the 2017 Movie Music Matinee with the help of local high school musicians.
