Community concert group offers new season

Joyce Rudolph, Weekend

Award-winning violinist Linda Wang is a featured performer for the new

2000-2001 season offered by the Glendale Community Concerts Assn. One of

six performances scheduled, Wang will appear on Nov. 5.

Wang, a first-prize winner of the International Markneukirchen

Competition in Germany, has appeared at the world's most celebrated

concert venues, including Carnegie Hall in New York and the Berlin

Schauspielhaus.

Her solo debut was with the New York Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta at

age 9.

This year's Community Concerts season kicks off Sept. 17 with the

Black Mountain Male Choir of Wales returning to the United States for its

third tour since 1996. The group was originally created for Community

Concerts audiences in order to bring the power of Welsh male choral music

to this country.

Taylor 2 Dance Company, made up of six dancers, takes the audience

back to the '40s with dances and music from the big band era. It will

perform on Oct. 22.

The folk singing trio The Limeliters brings its blend of harmony,

humor and satire to Glendale on Feb. 4.

Side Street Strutters offer big band music with its "Jumpin' into

Swing" in March.

Debra Reuter-Pivetta, a flutist who has appeared with great orchestras

here, in Italy, Switzerland and Germany, will perform April 1.

"We cater to all different types of musical entertainment," said Robin

Winkelstein, Glendale Community Concerts Assn. president. "Each one of

the attactions that we have is of the highest professional quality. Many

of the attractions consist of many performers because the audience likes

to see more than one person on the stage."

Admission to the concerts is by membership only. Glendale Community

Concerts Assn. is a nonprofit group that is part of a national network

made up of 600 units, with a parent company in New York that arranges the

entertainment, Winkelstein said.

Through reciprocity arrangements with other concert associations,

Glendale members can attend concerts presented by neighboring Community

Concert associations at no additional charge, depending on seat

availability. Schedules come with the membership packet.

Volunteer workers and the Patron Plan of donations make it possible to

present professional artists at a reasonable cost to members.

The local association has brought professional entertainment to

Glendale for 48 years.

Concerts are at 2:30 p.m. Sundays in the Glendale High School

Auditorium, 1440 E. Broadway, Glendale. Adult membership for the season

is $40 and $12 for students. Tickets are not available for single

concerts. For membership information, call 249-4625.
