Lake Charles Symphony conductor Bohuslav Rattay has come up with an idea to let the audience have a hand in selecting one of the pieces that the orchestra will play at the next concert.
He has chosen three pieces that use similar-size orchestras: Debussy’s “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun,” Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Capriccio Espagnol,” and Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Russian Easter Festival Overture.”
Votes may be cast for a favorite by voting with dollars, raising funds for the symphony’s programs while getting symphony-goers involved. The “People’s Choice Overture” will be performed at the Feb. 2 concert.
Voting may be done through December by mailing a check to the Lake Charles Symphony, P.O. Box 3102, Lake Charles, LA 70602.
