In memory of our founder, Robert Anderson

Robert B.  Anderson, founder and Conductor Emeritus of the Cascade Symphony, slipped quietly out of this world on the evening of Friday, May 11. He was a dear friend, teacher and mentor to many of us in the symphony. His life was devoted to music and education, and he leaves a lasting legacy that will be enjoyed for generations to come.

Monday night’s final concert of the season was dedicated to Bob. As the Sno-King Community Chorale joined their voices to the Cascade Symphony in the presentation of Beethoven’s monumental Ninth Symphony, the phrase “Joyful, Joyful” took on new and special meaning as we celebrated the memory of a life well lived.

    Sam and Sarah, I had just emailed this to snoomee? I copied it to send to you. I just want to thank snoomee for that fantastic night last night at Orchestra Hall. Both my friend and I have had bad memories and experiences of Stravinky’s Firebird. Both Sam and Sarah taught us of the different versions (I heard the ballet one last time). They taught us how to listen and for what to listen so now I had this gorgeous imagery in my mind, could hear the 4 note theme and afterwards, my friend and I couldn’t imagine how we ever hated this piece, the entire thing was so gorgeous. Thanks to Sam and Sarah for making me laugh and how fun to watch Sarah conduct. Thank you Orchestra Hall.
