In Sunday’s (5/5) Tribune-Democrat (Johnstown, Pennsylvania), Ruth Rice writes, “Johnstown Symphony Orchestra has announced its 85th concert season for 2013-2014, ‘Great Music for a Great City.’ The symphony will mark the 125th anniversary of the city of Johnstown with a yearlong celebration highlighting how much it has become an integral part of the city. ‘It is with great anticipation that I look forward to the next season of Johnstown Symphony Orchestra,’ said Maestro Istvan Jaray, music director. ‘It contains the diversity, thrill and appeal of new works that will satisfy any audience. There will be some new pieces and some very pleasant familiar family works. Each concert will be a touching and memorable show that will tap into the human emotion of our community.’ ” The May 3 season closer is a “Happy 125th Anniversary Johnstown” celebration. “There will be a $5 discount on any single ticket for senior citizens, and student tickets will be $10.”
