N OT E F R O M T HE P RESID E N T On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors of the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra, I welcome you to our 2016-2017 concert season. We have an exciting season planned for you: with a movie-themed concert, the addition of a matinee performance, and with new season ticket options we should have something for everyone. Whether you are a season subscriber or attending individual concerts, we are certain you will enjoy each and every performance of your Orchestra. We are honored to have Maestro William Intriligator continuing to lead the Orchestra and we are very pleased to announce that we have extended his contract for an additional five years. We cannot say enough about the professionalism and dedication of William and our orchestra members. As we have highlighted from time to time, there are countless hours of preparation and hundreds of miles travelled to bring this music to you. Please donâ€™t hesitate to share your appreciation of their effort with them. As you will see and hear, the CSO continues to present the highest quality musical performances and world-class guest artists, and we also strive to collaborate with local arts organizations and educational institutions by showcasing aspiring, young, local and regional artists. By providing opportunities to work with our professional musicians, we hope to foster other cultural and educational events in the community, and thereby contribute to the quality of life for residents of Cheyenne. Music is the soul of our community and the Board of Directors continues its commitment to the long-term growth of the CSO so as to ensure that we remain a strong and vibrant community member. Your support through ticket sales and donations, along with our concert sponsors, helps make this possible. We will, of course, continue to express our gratitude to our sponsors and donors, whose love of music and understanding of the importance of the CSO keeps us going. Thank you.

MUSIC DIRECTOR & CONDUCTOR D r. W i l l i a m Int r il i g a tor 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 Intriligatorâ€™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 Mozartâ€™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. Intriligator resides in Dubuque with his wife Lisa and their four sons.
NOT E F R O M T HE MAE STRO Dear Friends, Welcome to the 2016-2017 season of the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra! We have another great lineup of music to be played by your wonderful orchestra. We will feature great composers of the past such as Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Dvorak, Saint-Saëns, Strauss, Faure, Mahler, and Bernstein. We will also feature beautiful music by living composers John Williams, Phillip Glass, and Jordan Roper. We’re mixing it up in ways that keep it fresh and alive. We also have wonderful guest musicians joining the orchestra, including The American Piano Duo, violinist Yoojin Jang, the Act II Dance Studio, and pianist Lei Weng. This is so exciting! For our blockbuster season finale of Mahler’s “Resurrection” Symphony, a super-sized Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra will be joined by the Cheyenne Chamber Singers, the University of Wyoming Collegiate Chorale, the LCCC Cantorei Singers and Chorale, members of the Larimer Chorale, soprano Sarah Shafer, and mezzo-soprano Rebecca Ringle. I can’t wait! After hearing The American Piano Duo perform at our opening night concert, you won’t want to miss their “encore” performance at Hausmusik on the following Sunday afternoon, September 25th, at Wyoming Hereford Ranch! Our holiday concert has become another great Cheyenne tradition! Don’t miss the orchestra, local choirs, youth choirs, vocal soloists, and ballet dancers all performing on December 10th in celebration of that glorious season! Another way we are keeping things new and fresh is by adding a family matinee concert. Featuring music from the movies, this 2 p.m. concert on January 14th will be fun for the entire family. Bring kids in costume and also enjoy the pre-concert activities in the lobby. Our new Brass & Beer concert on May 13th features the Boulder Brass Quintet in the lovely Atlas Theater. Should be a blast. Literally. I hope to see you at all these performances, and thank you again for supporting the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra and the arts in our community! Musically Yours,
Proud Supporter of the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra

E XPE R IE N C E A N D EXP LO RE Classic Conversations—Enhancing 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. We are grateful to our Gold Business Partners for being the generous sponsors of Classic Conversations. 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 Tuna Fish & Peanut Butter Classic Conversations, an informal and informative hour of musical conversation.

SY M P HO N Y CO URTESIES 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-toseat 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.

ME E T T H E SY M P HON Y FRIE N D S ... 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 simplest level, the “Friends” are CSO volunteers who contribute their time, talent and energy to promote the Cheyenne Symphony. During our first year of reorganization, the Friends focused on outreach and hospitality. We welcomed guests at each concert and fielded questions from newcomers about upcoming events. We produced marketing and advertising materials such as Tempo Magazine, a newsletter promoting each CSO concert. We baked cookies, housed musicians during winter storms and provided transportation for guest artists. We also represented the CSO at events such as Superday, where we shared information about next season’s lineup with the public. In July the Friends hosted their first ever fundraiser for the symphony, a French-Inspired wine-tasting event held at the Nagle-Warren Mansion. Spearheaded by member Wendy Owen, the event was an enormous success and went a long way to achieving the fund-raising 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 Face Book page and our page on the CSO website, or call the office during business hours, at 307-778-8561.

E D UC ATIO N A L OUTREACH “Giving the Gift of Music” Programs At the CSO, we believe in the power of music to transform communities in many ways. Early music education means students are learning skills that will prove beneficial for the rest of their lives- critical thinking skills, creativity, innovation, socialization and more. “It’s a GAS” (Guest Artists in the Schools) Bringing professional guest artists into K-12 music classrooms motivates, inspires, and teaches the virtue of discipline to students. 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 5th and 6th grade students from Laramie County School District #1 and #2, parochial, private and home-schooled children to the Cheyenne Civic Center for two performances. Junior high and high school orchestra students also attend the concerts. “It’s COOL” (Conductor of the Orchestra Leads) The CSO conductor makes visits to elementary, junior high, high school, and college music classes. Presenting music as fun and rewarding has been the priority of Dr. Intriligator’s visits.
“Take a SEAT” (Students Enjoy a Ticket) With support from the CSO Foundation, approximately 600 free tickets are distributed throughout the season to area high school and college students enrolled in music programs. Concert admission is reduced for students so that they may attend live concerts for less than the cost of a movie. “FUSE” (Fine Arts Unlocking Student Excellence) - Recent research shows that skills developed in the music classroom can help students to achieve in other areas. These programs reach students outside the music classroom and help them to make connections across the disciplines. • Art in Music—8-12th graders are challenged to imagine and create works of art based on music to be performed by the CSO at the annual YES! Concerts. Student art is displayed at the Cheyenne Civic Center and judged by a panel of experts. Awards are presented at the January Masterpiece concert. Participants and their families are invited to attend free of charge.
• Music in Words - CSO’s writing contest asks 3rd and 4th grade students, at LCSD #1 & #2 elementary schools to write a creative response to a selection from one of the season’s concerts. The submissions will be displayed at the Cheyenne Civic Center during the March Masterpiece concert for the audience to enjoy. Winners are acknowledged on stage and winning responses are printed in the concert program. Participants and their families are invited to attend free of charge. • Instrument Petting Zoo - Children of all ages can touch, play and hear the instruments of the orchestra up-close at instrument petting zoo events. Musicians and skilled volunteers are on hand to teach basic techniques and allow individuals to explore the many instruments that make up each family of the orchestra: strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion.
