Chattanooga Symphony Youth Orchestra Celebrates 20 Years with Gary Wilkes
The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Youth Orchestras (CSOYO) concludes their 2012-2013 season on May 6 at 7 pm at the Tivoli Theatre featuring all four orchestras and featured soloists, including Jay Craven (Chattanooga’s “Mr. Music”) and Thomas West (PAL Vocal Competition winner).
Many friends and alumni will be on hand to help Gary Wilkes celebrate his 20th anniversary with the CSO Youth Orchestras. One of those will be Jay Craven, former conductor of the youth orchestra when Gary was a student member. In 1966 Gary Wilkes played a solo as concerto competition winner with the youth orchestra with Jay Craven conducting. Now they are trading places! In addition, the selection that Jay Craven has chosen to play, “Concertino for Clarinet and Orchestra” by Karl Maria von Weber, is the very same selection he played in 1953 with the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra when he was the student concerto competition winner.
The CSOYO Prelude and Etude Orchestras, conducted by Nichole Pitts, will open the concert. Following them will be the CSOYO Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sandy Morris. The program (with no intermission) will conclude with the CSOYO Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Gary Wilkes. Also featured on the program is the Performing Arts League Vocal Competition winner, Thomas West. Thomas was featured on a live broadcast of “From the Top” here in Chattanooga last year.

ISAIAH WASHINGTON TO RETURN TO "GREY'S ANATOMY"
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Seven years after he was fired, Isaiah Washington is returning to "Grey's Anatomy." But it won't be a long run. ABC says he will be back in May as the season ends. The end the season will also bring the departure of Sandra Oh. Her character was engaged to Washington's character at one point in the hospital drama. Washington left the series in 2007 after a controversy over his use of an anti-gay slur against fellow actor T.R. Knight. Washington repeated the slur at the 2007 Golden Globe awards. Despite apologizing and meeting with gay-rights groups, he was cut loose from the show.
ARIEL WINTER - "MR. PEABODY AND SHERMAN"
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Ariel Winter had heard of "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" before she was cast as Penny in the movie version of it, but she had never seen it. Winter says she looked up the cartoons and thought they were "hilarious and brilliant," but then she made a realization: Penny wasn't in the cartoons. Winter saw that as an opportunity, because she could create the character. She says it was like being given a blank book and she got to write the pages. "Mr. Peabody and Sherman" opens in theaters today.
Ariel Winter says she doesn't limit herself to just live acting or just voiceovers for animation because she wants to do everything.
