In the first part of this episode, Carson City Symphony Conductor David Bugli interviews Lorraine Manatt, head of the Symphony's percussion section. They lightheartedly discuss on Zoom the process of preparing her section for a performance of Gwyneth Walker's "Fanfare for the Family Farm." The section uses some unusual instruments and takes an unusual approach to concert dress. The performance took place on April 28, 2019.

In the second part, the Symphony performs "Fanfare for the Family Farm." It is a boisterous celebration of life on a family-owned dairy farm. The composer, who used to reside on the Brainstorm Dairy Farm in Braintree, Vermont, wrote this music as an expression of the joy and humor she finds in living on a dairy farm. See Dr. Walker's website at https://www.gwynethwalker.com.

The Symphony was prepared to have the quartet return in March 2020, but with complications from the Coronavirus and other factors, that visit was canceled. We hope to have them return in the fall of 2021.

In this episode, in honor of Fathers Day 2020, we present music by the man considered the "father of the symphony" and the "father of the string quartet," Franz Joseph Haydn. He was a major and revered influence on composers who came after him, including Mozart and Beethoven. His patrons, the Esterhazy family, built a palace in a remote area of what is now Hungary and required Haydn to write many musical works to entertain them and impress their guests. He produced 104 symphonies, over 80 string quartets, numerous operas and masses, and other works.

This episode features our concertmaster, Dr. Brian Fox, performing the second and third movements of Haydn's First Violin Concerto. The preview, concerning this piece, and concert were recorded Oct. 20, 2019.

Carson City Symphony Association announces release of Project Euterpe Episode 6 with the Carson Chamber Singers.

Hutton said he chose Johannes Brahms' "Geistliches Lied (Sacred Song), Op. 30" for the Singers' 2020 Summer Project because "it is a song about endurance during difficult times, perseverance, resilience... something we all can relate to now!" Brahms composed the piece in 1856, at age 23, setting his music to a poem by Paul Flemming (1609-1640).

Project Euterpe - Episode 10 - The Hank Monk Schottische
Release date: 12/5/2020

Photograph of musicians and dancers for Hank Monk Schottische

This episode features the Carson City Symphony performing "The Hank Monk Schottische," a composition written by Carson City, Nevada, Composer J.P. Meder (1848-1908). The piece was written to honor Hank Monk (1826-1883), a legendary stagecoach driver. Monk was made famous in part due to a story about his giving Horace Greeley, presidential candidate and former "New York Tribune" editor, a rather bumpy ride in 1859 from Carson City to Placerville, California. Greeley, who was on a lecture tour, was insistent about not being late to present a lecture in Placerville. Monk, a colorful storyteller, entertained many people with the story of this trip and other stories about his adventures. Mark Twain, who lived briefly with his brother in Carson City, was so enamored of the Hank Monk story that he has several characters relate the same story about Monk and Greeley in chapter 20 of "Roughing It," Twain's classic 1872 book about his experience as a young man in the western US and Hawaii.

Virtual TUBACHRISTMAS plays "Christmas Tuba Fantasy"
Release date: 12/16/2020

Screen capture for TUBACHRISTMAS video

With the permission of the Harvey Phillips Foundation, Inc., I made an arrangement called "Christmas Tuba Fantasy" featuring several Christmas tunes for tuba-euphonium quartet. We asked musicians to record themselves at home and to send us videos that we could assemble. Most of the featured tunes in this medley closely follow the arrangements found in "Carols for a Merry TUBACHRISTMAS," the volume familiar to brass players around the world. We dedicate this work to Dr. Gary Robert Buchanan, who died in October and who conducted Reno TUBACHRISTMAS performances from 2004 to 2019. Parts and other resources for "Christmas Tuba Fantasy" are available at DavidBugli.com/tuba2020.htm. My role was as arranger, project coordinator, and post-production editor (Premiere Pro).

Rhyolite, More than a Ghost Town: Cultural Resource Management in the Phantom City of Rhyolite, Nevada
Release date: 2/4/2021

Screen capture for Blustain lecture

The Carson City Historical Society presents a lecture by Jonah S. Blustain, BLM Assistant Field Manager: "More than a Ghost Town: Cultural Resource Management in the Phantom City of Rhyolite, Nevada." This lecture was presented on Zoom on January 21, 2021. The ghost town of Rhyolite, Nevada, is one of the more challenging public resources to manage. The town was originally the site of a large gold strike in 1904. By 1907, the early tent city had become a veritable metropolis. Rhyolite had running water, municipal utilities, three railroads, and a swimming pool. The boom ended as soon as it began, aided by the 1907 financial panic. With no viable mines, Rhyolite soon became a ghost town. Located on public land adjacent to the town of Beatty and the main entrance to Death Valley National Park, Rhyolite receives approximately 250,000 visitors per year. The Bureau of Land Management is tasked with managing the town's historical values and recreational opportunities for future generations. This lecture covered some of the site's current management challenges, the solutions developed by the BLM, and the ways the public can get involved in preserving a unique, irreplaceable resource. My role on this was lecture coordinator, interviewer, and post-production editor (Premiere Pro).

Project Euterpe - Episode 12 - "Far From Me"
Release date: 3/21/2021

Screen shot from 'Far From Me' video

The Carson City Symphony Assoc. announces the release of "Project Euterpe - Episode 12 - Far From Me." This episode features the Carson Chamber Singers, an affiliate of the Carson City Symphony, performing works by Claudio Monteverdi and Elaine Hagenberg, conducted by Richard "Ricky" Hutton.

Hutton writes: "I selected these pieces to be performed as a set that engages with the experience of choral musicians (and many others) during the pandemic. The text of Monteverdi's 'Longe da te, cor mio' from his fourth book of Italian madrigals speaks of loved ones separated by distance yearning to be reunited. Brian Newhouse's two texts, set by Elaine Hagenberg as companion pieces, also speak to the feelings of isolation and longing for connection. Hagenberg dedicates 'Songs from Silence' to 'the choral community in hope of healing during times of silence and distance.' Both the Monteverdi and Hagenberg are centered around the tonic pitch G (mixolydian, minor and major). We begin with the Monteverdi and then move right into the Hagenberg after a brief silence."
