The Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra (LASO) is celebrating their 60th Anniversary with a concert to be presented at 7 p.m. Nov. 9 at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church. Two former Los Alamos High School students and former members of the LASO will present the featured number on the program. Kay Johnson Newnam, violin and Thomas O'Connor, oboe, are now professional musicians and will perform the "Concerto for Oboe and Violin," by J.S. Bach. Also on the program will be the "Fanfare Diamante" by local composer and trombonist T.E. Vives, "Capriccio Italienne" by Tschaikovsky and "Symphony No. 5" by Ludwig Van Beethoven.
During the war years Los Alamos had no organized instrumental group, but there were several small chamber groups and a very fine jazz band that entertained the community weekly. A group comprised of military and civilian personnel was formed under the direction of Robert Dike, a French horn player. Dike wrote special scores for the available talent. Some of the people who performed under Dike were Diz and Al Graves, Moll Flanders, Eric Jette, Frank Bice, Robert Richtmeyer, Harold Fishbein, Hermond Lacey, Frank Osvath and Don Lovelace.
