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.

JIMMY FALLON PUTS HIS HEAD BETWEEN HEIDI KLUM'S LEGS
NEW YORK (AP) -- Jimmy Fallon jokes his wife is going to kill him. On last night's "Tonight Show" Fallon put his head between Heidi Klum's legs. They were doing an acrobatic stunt, a head-to-heels roll forming a human wheel. They started with Fallon lying on a mat with Klum standing astride over his head. Fallon promised not to peek up her dress. Klum said the only thing to see up there was the transmitter to her wireless mic. After they finished their roll, Klum told Fallon they were going to do it German-style. They did another series of rolls, this time belly-to-belly.
