Orchestra (PCO) performs

5, and Neruda’s Trumpet 
Concerto, featuring soloist

 Female composer Lili 
Boulanger was a French child 
prodigy born in 1893. She 
came from a musical family 
of singers and composers 
and entered the prestigious 
Paris Conservatoire in 1912. 
D’un Matin de Printemps 
(‘One Spring Morning’), 
written for violin and piano, 
was composed shortly before 
her death and has since 
been adapted for orchestra. 
The piece is a joyful nod to 
Debussy and was considered 
progressive for its time.

 Beethoven’s great Symphony 
No. 5 in C Minor was written 
between 1804 and 1808 and 
was dedicated to Russian 
Prince Lobkowitz and Count 
Andreas Razumovsky. 
Eventually, the piece came 
to epitomize Beethoven’s life 
and musical style and has 
been used in popular culture 
and inaugural events ever 
since. Beethoven revealed in 
1801 that he was beginning 
to lose his hearing and once 
wrote about the 5th that it is 
about “fate knocking at the 

 Johann Baptist George 
Neruda was a classical 
Czech composer who wrote 
his 3-movement Trumpet 
Concerto in E-flat Major 
during the baroque era. The 
repertoire was originally 
written for a hunting horn 
or corno da caccia. The 
present version of the piece 
was published in 1974 by 
a famous trumpet player 
by the name of David R. 
Hickman. The sound and 
range of this concerto is 
an unusual work for the 
modern trumpet.

 PCO is supported through 
generous benefactor 
sponsorship and run 
by board members and 
volunteers. Audience 
members may meet the 
Music Director and other 
musicians at a reception 
following the concert.

 The concert will be in the 
sanctuary of First Church of 
the Nazarene, 3700 E. Sierra 
Madre Blvd.

Children are invited to visit 
the library to read animal-
related short stories of 
their choice to dogs from 
the Pasadena Humane 
Society Companion Animal 
Program. Not only does this

child’s confidence in reading 
aloud. Also, the available 
books will help

children realize that animals 
experience a range of 
emotions similar to their 
own and that they have 
basic needs too. This will, 
in turn, encourage them to 
appreciate the importance of 
treating all

animals with respect 
and kindness. Sign-
ups are required. Go to:
