Newport Symphony Orchestra


My greatest thanks to this fabulous orchestra, and its fabulous conductor, Adam! Thank you premiering my piece so musically! I will never forget this past weekend!
My husband and I really enjoyed the Bella Italia concert!! I made a new friend too! The woman who sat next to me in row "B" said she loves the NSO, then asked me if I attended the Beethoven 9th Symphony concert, and I said "I was in the concert!" What a priviledge!! Tricia Miller/North Bend, OR.
I'm really looking forward to singing the Beethoven 9th Symphony with the NSO, the end of September!! The last time I sang that was with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and Chorus! I'm enjoying being a member of the Central Coast Chorale!! What a great group of musicians! Tricia Miller
Parade during Saturday Concert
THIS WEEKEND: The Newport Symphony Orchestra brings the magical, thrilling sounds of John Williams music scores to life on the center stage. Come hear the music of Harry Potter, Star Wars, Superman, Jurassic Park, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and, of course, Jaws! Sponsored by Columbia Bank and by Georgia-Pacific. Tickets still available! Call 541-265-ARTS or visit (Costumes welcome! Kids - come early to make your own magic wand!)
My husband and I drove up to Newport for the 4th of July concert and thoroughly enjoyed it! After the concert we were able to talk with Maestro Flatt, and he asked me if 'd like to perform the Beethoven 9th symphony with the CCC. I talked with the Chorale's music director, Mary Lee today, and I'm in!! Thank you SO much Mr. Flatt for recommending this to me! Tricia Miller
Bravo for the NSO!! My husband and I attended the concert in Florence on the 23rd and thoroughly enjoyed it! It was good to see Adam Flatt again-I sang with the Colo. Symphony Chorus when Adam was the associate director of the CSO!! Tricia Miller-retired music teacher
David Ogden Steirs was probably the wittiest person I have ever met.He was incredibly kind and generous also .When he
transferred his cd library to a new format he not only gave me
a load of CDS, but lots of beguiling anecdotes about the performers.I loved his reading of Dickens Christmas Carol.Scrooges "conversion" had a certain sublime giddiness that touched the heart. I would have bought a ticket simply to hear him do Ravels Bolero again or even read the Pioneer phone book.My sister in law on my instruction acquired one of his book recordings played it on her car radio and nearly drove off the road,believing that her car had been invaded buy unruly spirits.When I told David . He wanted to write her a letter of condolence. Like a fool I WOULDN'T LET HIM.
RIP David Ogden Stiers
Happy Birthday David Ogden Stiers
