Thanks to all who attended the recent Amalga Chamber Orchestra concerts! What a thrill it was for us to share music by Juneau’s own Artemio Sandoval and some “space music” by Alan Hovhaness. Of course, we were especially excited to provide the first glimpse into the upcoming Princess Sophia opera by Emerson Eads, who was able to join us for the concerts. There were more than a few weepy eyes in the audience!
