Today’s playlist comes from LGSO violinist, Laurie Cornue. Laurie has shared her talents in both the orchestra and in chamber music settings for a number of years. She enthusiastically submitted this music after I asked the musicians to think about what they would recommend, and I have greatly enjoyed listening to these selections! Laurie sent her ideas before the first playlist was posted last week, and it is interesting that arrangements of the Beatles tune “Here Comes the Sun” appear on both. This just shows that the song’s message of “don’t lose hope. Brighter days ahead” is a message that has connected with people in a profound way and one that we all need to hear.
I am also pleased that you will be able to hear Laurie’s fine playing and expert musicianship in an arrangement of “The Sacred Romance,” by Michael W. Smith.
All best wishes,
Music Director, Lake Geneva Symphony Orchestra
