Bluegrass fest stays true to its roots

CASHMERE — The sound of banjos and bass carried softly on a chilly twilight breeze Monday — four days before this weekend’s Wenatchee River Bluegrass Festival at the Chelan County Expo Center. The campground opened at noon, and already a caravan of about 30 RVs and tent campers had rolled in — the first of about 300 expected this weekend.

Commedia dell’heart

Love. Deceit. Disguise. Everything but death. That last element, it’s said, is what distinguishes tragedy from comedy. Nobody dies in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Così fan tutte,” so it must be a comedy. (Also: it’s funny.)

WENATCHEE — An annual holiday concert featuring one of the region’s top gospel quintets will expand this year to feature comedy, skits and a choir of some of the area’s most accomplished singers. “A Christmas Celebration,” the annual concert of CommonBond 5, will also be the release party for the group’s sixth compact disc, entitled “Come Out of the Wilderness.”

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.
