Symphony holds poster contest

Reveals winners

In its spring 2000 newsletter, the Sun Valley Summer Symphony revealed the winners of its 2000 poster contest.

The SVSS, for the second year, invited local high school art students to design the art for the season publications.

Winner was Kyra Stehwien-Smith, a senior at The Community School in Sun Valley and an art student of Toni Whittington.

Stehwien-Smith, who plans to attend Lewis & Clark College, will receive a $300 award and be honored at one of the concerts during the SVSS season.

Three Wood River High School students received honorable mention.

They were Mark Daniels, Jens Kuross and Sky Barker, all students of John Blackman.

SVSS representatives said they plan to exhibit the four winning entries at various venues in the valley. They also thanked SVSS volunteer Val Hartl, who organized the poster contest, and to the other students who participated. They were:

  • Robby Matthews of Silver Creek Alternative School;

  • Riley Nash of The Community School;

  • Chari Fochs and Kelly McAllister of Wood River High School;

  • Tiffany Kimball, Chaille Molyneux and Christina Reay of Carey High School.

This year’s SVSS season starts with the Edgar M. Bronfman Chamber Series July 23, 25 and 27 in the symphony tent in Sun Valley.

The concert on Bald Mountain has been scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 5 at 11 a.m.

Donation of chimes, tuba

An integral part of the SVSS mission is the inclusion of an educational component and the promotion of music education outreach to kids and adults.

Accordingly, the SVSS has purchased two instruments for the Wood River High School concert band.

They are orchestral chimes and a concert tuba.

Normally, high schools own these instruments. But until the recent SVSS donation, the WRHS music department had to make do without them.

The purchase will also benefit the SVSS because the chimes will be used during the upcoming concert season.
