The Salem Philharmonic Orchestra Winter Concert Series

The third of the 2013 Salem Philharmonic Orchestra Winter Concert Series will be held Sunday, January 20th, at Salem High School Auditorium, 77 Willson Street. Concerts are free to the public, are handicap accessible. The performance starts at 3:30 PM.

The concert features a diverse program played by a 45 piece orchestra of talented, mostly professional musicians, along with some selected amateurs and a guest soloist featured at each concert. Conducting will be Alan Hawryluk, conductor of the orchestra for the past 47 years.

This week’s concert features Lisa Brooke on violin, and Jeanne Gabriel Pocius Dorismond on trumpet.

Praised for her "unusually intelligent and sensitive playing", Lisa Brooke is teaching violin and viola at Salem State University, and performed in NYC with the Orchestra of Saint Lukes', the NY Pops, the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the American Symphony Orchestra, the Queens Symphony Opera Orchestra, Eve Queller Opera and the American Composer's Orchestra, and has toured the US, Spain, Japan, Korea and Hong Kong with numerous ensembles. She has toured Spain with Solisti of the Metropolitan Opera, and worked under James Levine and Leonard Bernstein in the Music for Life Concerts, Carnegie Hall.

Jeanne Gabriel Pocius Dorismond has performed as a soloist in both classical and jazz venues throughout the United States, Canada, Italy and the Caribbean. Author of the internationally acclaimed trumpet textbook, "Trumpeting By Nature", she has students on six of the seven continents, and has served as a professor of music in Haiti since the summer of 2008. Jeanne is also founder and president of the international charity "Instrumental Change, Inc." which provides musical instruments and supplies to music students and professionals in Haiti, Africa, South America and in needy areas of the United States.

We welcome one and all to participate in this grand Salem tradition and enjoy the exceptional performances of our esteemed local orchestra, one of the great cultural resources that makes the city of Salem such an exciting place.
