Engelsen has enjoyed his fellow board members, who he described as “a dedicated group of volunteers who provide leadership and support year in and year out to make the orchestra a success.”
“The organization has survived 60 years because of the vision and persistence of musicians, the good management of members of the board of directors, and the enthusiastic support of the public,” Whipple said. “All of them see the advantage of active arts here in our community.”
In celebration of 60 years, the symphony orchestra will hold a dinner/social event at 5 p.m. April 5 at Rastrelli’s Tuscany Room. The annual concert will then begin at 7:30 p.m. at Vernon Cook Theater at the Clinton High School, featuring the “Symphony No. 4” by famed Russian composer Peter Tchaikovsky. Ticket prices are $15 for adults and $5 for students.
