Community symphonies are designed to make music accessible, to engage the public and maybe even to spark a lifelong love of music.
That’s at the heart of the Imagine Symphony Live film and music education project. The composer of the film’s music, Chris Thomas, recently won a big industry award for the score. Both he and the Imagine Symphony Live creator Evan Sigvallsen play cello in the Central Oregon Symphony, and their whole project, like symphony performances, are free to the public.
We talk with Thomas and Sigvallsen about their music and how they hope it will be enjoyed and used to enrich children’s lives.
