Southeast Symphony Opens Season Oct. 3 With Music Dedicated to the Late Dr. Don Lee White

[The Late Dr. Don Lee White]

Jacqueline Cogdell DjeDje is Chair and Professor, Department of Ethnomusicology, UCLA. She sends news from Dr. Hansonia Caldwell, a retired Professor of Music at California State University Dominguez Hills, of a concert of the Southeast Symphony of Los Angeles at which music of Handel will be dedicated to the late Dr. Don Lee White:

The Southeast Symphony is scheduled to open its season on Sunday, October 3rd, at 3 pm, at Trinity Baptist Church.

“The concert will open with the Samuel Barber Adagio for Strings, a wonderful work that will be appropriately dedicated to Don. The rest of the concert will feature the music of Handel, (Royal Fireworks Music and Water Music). Charles Dickerson, the ensemble's conductor, has suggested that the Hallellujah Chorus serve as the culmination of the concert, and has extended an invitation to the singers who loved Don to come, bring your scores, and be ready to celebrate this great man with great music.”
