Olympia Symphony Orchestra to Perform Free Concert at Tenino Quarry Pool


At 1 p.m. on Aug. 8 in the Tenino Quarry Pool kiddie area, the Olympia Symphony Orchestra will perform a free concert.

The pool was drained for construction, and Tenino Mayor Wayne Fournier told The Chronicle in June the city was entering talks with local theater and musical groups to fill the rocky venue with the arts throughout the summer.

Attendees should bring appropriate seating to the concert — keeping in mind that the pool is a gravel pit — and some form of shade, such as a hat or umbrella.

The performance will be a mix of patriotic and Americana favorites, followed by familiar classical tunes made popular in old cartoons. Fournier will also be making his conducting debut for one of the songs.

The program, otherwise conducted by Joe Dyvig, will be:

• National Anthem

• Beethoven: Symphony No. 5, Mvt. 1

• Selections from West Side Story

• Armed Forces Salute

• Sousa: Stars and Stripes Forever

• Rossini: Barber of Seville Overture

• Smetana: Dance of the Comedians

• von Suppe: Light Cavalry Overture

• Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2
