Dear Patrons and Friends of the Orchestra,
I would like to invite you to our award-winning Bravura Philharmonic Orchestra Season Opening Concert at 7 pm Sunday, September 29, at the Princeton Alliance Church, 20 Schalks Crossing Road, located at the intersection of Scudders Mill Road and Schalks Crossing Road, Plainsboro, NJ. This concert, “An American Salute“ will present works of great American composers: Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, Rogers and Hammerstein and John Phillip Sousa.
The program includes compositions by Aaron Copland that includes great orations of Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth President of the United States - Lincoln Portrait - and Fanfare for Common Man, the rhythmic and jazzy music of George Gershwin, Broadway musicals, and patriotic marches.
We are so thrilled that the script of Lincoln Portrait will be narrated by Congressman Rush Holt. Rep. Rush Holt has represented Central New Jersey in Congress since 1999. He is a member of the Congressional Arts Caucus, believing that arts play a crucial role in our society. Rep. Holt was Assistant Director of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, the largest research facility at Princeton University. The narration includes excerpts from Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address” and speeches to Congress, his stirring words deeply touching the American consciousness.
The “Fanfare for the Common Man” by Aaron Copland is a dramatic piece for brass and percussion. It is commonly heard at ceremonial events and televised athletic programs. Broadway musicals are a great American cultural pastime. Excerpts from familiar musicals by Rogers Hammerstein, “The Sound of Music” and “The King and I,” will be performed. John Phillip Sousa, recognized as the “American March King,” is known for his American military and patriotic marches. His famous composition "The Stars and Stripes Forever" (National March of the United States of America) will be performed.
Attached is the flyer of the concert. Please share it with your students and friends.
General Admission is $15, and $12 for seniors and students. Premium seating is available at $25 each. Tickets purchased in advance are $12 and can be obtained online from the Bravura Philharmonic Orchestra website www.bravuraphil.org, calling (609) 790-9559 or (732) 792-2070, or replying to this email.

Princeton Friends of Opera is a group of opera lovers located in the central New Jersey- Bucks County area. We are not affiliated with any opera company or educational institution. Besides supporting various opera companies and programs, both financially and through volunteer support, we offer members the opportunity to hear lectures about operas being performed in the area, tickets to local performances and trips to performances in New York , Philadelphia and other venues. Special opera events at PFO member homes also provide an opportunity for enthusiasts to gather and share the pleasures of this unique musical/theatrical form.
Click on the Upcoming Events button for a list of the exciting PFO events planned for 2009-2010. PFO also sponsors the Princeton Friends of Opera Meetup, an on-line social interaction website where internet-savvy people can meet other operaphiles and "meetup" for local events. Meetup events are more frequent, sometimes impromptu, and usually involve smaller numbers than our regular PFO events.
