About Mary Au:
Known for her “sensitive, seamless transition between chamber music collaboration and piano accompaniment”
This concert marks the orchestra's opening of it's 3rd full symphony orchestra season. The West Covina Symphony returned to the musical scene just 2 years ago after a lengthy absence of about 20 years. In spite of challenging times, the symphony has triumphed, completing an exciting inaugural season in 2008/9, and continuing to grow through the 2009/10 second season. Now in it's third season, the orchestra is again presenting a complete series of full orchestra concerts, and also presents world-class chamber music concerts, holiday concerts and other special events. Recent highlights include the "East Meets West" concert this past August, which celebrated music and musicians of many of the cultures of our diverse community, and the Free LA County Fair performance, at which Dr. Mann was honored as the 2010 "West Covina Community Hero" for her work with the symphony and the arts in our community. The educational outreach program, which makes free concerts available to local schools, is in full swing, and the West Covina Music Academy is well underway, as is the orchestra's "Young Artists Concerto Competition"
