Spectra Tech Inc. is sponsoring a free family concert featuring the Oak Ridge Symphony Orchestra to open the Oak Ridge Civic Music Association’s 74th season at 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 26, at Oak Ridge High School Performing Arts Center. Audience members will experience the sounds of a full symphony orchestra in “Bugs Bunny’s Greatest Hits from Looney Tunes,” “The Pink Panther,” “The Waltzing Cat” and more.

“The concert offers attendees the opportunity to hear how composers use the orchestra to tell stories and depict characters through music.  Following the concert, youth and their adults will be able to try a musical instrument. For some, it will be their first time to hold a musical instrument,” said ORCMA executive director Lisa Muci Eckhoff.

Lydia and Garren Anderson will be the featured youth talent, performing the dazzling “Navarra for Two Violins and Orchestra” by Spanish composer Pablo Sarasate.  The sister-and-brother duo are the winners of the 2018 Youth Aliyah Concert sponsored by Oak Ridge Hadassah.

Spectra Tech is an Oak Ridge-based engineering, environmental and nuclear services company providing technical solutions worldwide.

“We are exceptionally pleased to have the support of Spectra Tech for our youth and family music education concert,” said Jim Rome, president of ORCMA.
