The Juneau Student Symphony will perform the music of Leroy Anderson in two concerts on Friday, Aug. 28, at noon at the State Office Building and 7 p.m. at Marine Park (rain or shine). The audience will enjoy familiar favorites like "The Waltzing Cat" with its meowing violins and clarinets and barking percussionists, "Bugler's Holiday," "The Typewriter" with a percussion solo on the typewriter, "Jazz Pizzicato" and "Jazz Legato," among others. The concert will conclude with an out-of-season performance of "Sleigh Ride" featuring Kit Peterson on solo vocals.
Performances are pay-as-you-can. The Juneau Student Symphony is supported by the City and Borough of Juneau Youth Activities Grant and the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council.
