Spreading peace through music

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl would have been 41 years old Friday. But rather than brooding over Pearl’s murder by terrorists, the world is celebrating his life through music and Los Alamos is joining in the festivities.

The Los Alamos Community Winds, featuring Lesley Olsher, will host a concert at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.

The Los Alamos chapter of Hadassah is promoting the event.

The concert will feature several pieces of music including “Water Music Suite,” by G.F. Handel, “La Cathedrale Englouite” by Claude Debussy, “Victory at Sea,” by Richard Rodgers, “S.S. Eagle March” by Robert Russell Bennett, “Sea Songs,” by Ralph Vaughn-Williams, “Of Sailors and Whales,” by W. Francis McBeth, “Eternal Father, Strong to Save,” by Claude T. Smith, “Cloudburst,” by Eric Whiteacre and “Shenendoah,” arranged by winds director Ted Vives.

Olsher will perform “Shenendoah.” A performance she said she is honored to do.

She explained Vives’ piece is perfect for her because it has lots of high notes and it’s opportunity to sound pretty.

“So it’s pleasant to ear of the listener.”
