“Anticipation was palpable as lights went down in Crouse Performance Hall on Tuesday morning as members of the Lima Symphony Orchestra filled the stage,” writes James Luksic in Tuesday’s (11/10) Lima News (OH). “The noise built to a crescendo among the Young People’s Concert audience … as Sarah, the main character of ‘M is for Music,’ roamed the aisle … Actress Mary Jane Pories … exchanged banter with conductor Andrew Crust…. Sarah, the girl with a minimal grasp of classical music, strolled over to a giant book titled ‘M is for Music.’ She soon turned to Crust and said, ‘Show me what you got!’ at which point the symphony soared into Rossini’s ‘William Tell Overture,’ … Sarah’s cue to mimic riding on a horse, much to the kids’ delight. Dancing to ‘Baby Shark’ also sparked laughter…. Crust described the affair [as] ‘overwhelming’ in a positive way. ‘The LSO has more educational offerings than most orchestras our size. We consider it to be one of the most important functions of our symphony … to expose kids to the beauty and expressiveness of classical music.’ What’s more, he asserted, ‘The orchestra is sounding better than ever.’ ”
