Altoona Symphony Orchestra Features Donna Wissinger and  Joy Myers

“You say you want a revolution? Well, the Altoona Symphony Orchestra and its featured artists (Donna Wissinger, flute, and Joy Myers, piano) will bring their audience just that with their “Revolution” program….”

“Wissinger said one piece called “Falling Down Doodle,” is based on popular children’s songs “London Bridge is Falling Down” and “Yankee Doodle,” and pits her and Myers against the orchestra. The piece was written specifically for the two musicians by composer Jeremy Ribando.”….

“Performances of Robert Kerr’s “The Ulster-Scots: Voyage of Hope” and “Johnny Appleseed Suite” and Aaron Copland’s classic “Fanfare for the Common Man” will also be heard at the performance.”
