PGSO and Guests Thrill Large Crowd
Prince George, B.C. – There was an enormous turnout of symphonic music enthusiasts at Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park on Sunday as the Prince George Symphony Orchestra presented its annual Pops in the Park performance.
Admirers old and young, families and singles gathered on the grass fronting the Kiwanis Bandshell on a fairly sunny afternoon as Jose Delgado-Guevara conducted the PGSO through some of the more popular pieces written by Gilbert and Sullivan.
As an added treat, the orchestra was joined by guest vocalists Beverly Smith, Wil Fundal and Amanda Spurlock who entertained the audience with their interpretive stylings. The trio had many in the audience smiling as they joined the orchestra (below) in a performance of “Three little maids from school are we”, from the Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera The Mikado.
This free Pops in the Park concert marked the final performance as conductor of the PGSO for Delgado-Guevara, who is returning to the position of concertmaster after conducting for the past year.
