Giving voice

You can’t help but stand for the “Hallelujah” chorus of George Frideric Handel’s “The Messiah.” Blame it on King George II. The English monarch purportedly rose to his feet during the famous chorus, which closes the second act of Handel’s 1742 oratorio.

Symphony sans baton

Wenatchee Valley Symphony music director and conductor Marty Zyskowski resigned from his post earlier this year, so the season’s concerts are led by a series of guest conductors.

Post-‘prodigy’

Midori refused to be frozen in time. She could have forever been that violin genius who made her attention-getting debut with the New York Philharmonic, at age 11. Or the 14-year-old who wowed America, and Leonard Bernstein, by overpowering two broken violins to carry out her solo with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood in 1986.
