Southeast Iowa Symphony announces 63rd season

The Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra has unveiled plans for its 63rd season. Under the direction of conductor Robert McConnell, the regional orchestra will present a full slate of classical concerts, Kidsymphony concerts, summer and Christmas concerts, the Pops and educational activities. Complete details about the orchestra and the season are now available at www.seiso.us.

The first performance is the annual “Symphonic Blast!” in Burlington’s Crapo Park, July 6. Starting at dusk (8:15 p.m.), the concert will be a rich and wonderful blend of popular and light classical music. As always, it will conclude with Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever and the best fireworks in the region. Bring your family and a picnic supper for a very memorable evening in Crapo Park. With funding from the John H. Witte, Jr. Foundation, the Starker Foundation and the Cullen Family Foundation, this concert is offered free of charge with an opportunity to make a free-will donation to the orchestra.

In September, SEISO will perform two extraordinary POPS concerts. The first performance with dinner and concert will be held Saturday, Sept. 14 at Bridge View Center in Ottumwa. The Burlington Pops will follow on Sunday evening, Sept. 15 and will be held at Memorial Auditorium. Featured guest artist is pianist Michael Philipsen who will perform Gershwin’s classic, “Rhapsody in Blue.” Tickets for dinner and the concert are ordered directly through the Burlington and/or Ottumwa Pops Committees. Reservation forms will be mailed in August. Those who do not receive the SEISO season brochure and wish to order Pops tickets for the first time, should contact the Symphony Office at 610 N. Main St., Mt. Pleasant, IA 52641 or write to seiso@iwc.edu. Tickets for concert-only seating will be available (without prior reservations) at the door at each venue.

Season tickets are on sale now for SEISO’s classical concert series (fall, winter and spring). The fall concert series (Oct. 19-20) will feature a large regional chorus in performances of Poulenc’s masterpiece Gloria and Cantique de Jean Racine, Op. 11 by Gabrial Fauré. Dr. Bradley Miller, director of vocal and choral activities at Iowa Wesleyan College will serve as guest conductor for Fauré’s piece. In addition, the orchestra will complete this amazing concert with a performance of Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8 in G Major, Op. 88.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about building code compliance. One Centerville resident at Monday's City Council meeting proposed the city create two new positions in the police department to only deal with minimum housing and nuisance abatement issues. The city currently has George Johnson as the only employee assigned to enforce building code compliance issues. Does Centerville need more than just Johnson to enforce code compliance issues? So, the question of the week is, "Should Centerville hire additional help to assist George Johnson enforce building code compliance issues?"

A. Yes
B. No
C. Not sure
