The Bucks County Symphony is celebrating its 70th season this year and it is adding some celebratory events.
The year has started with an announcement that a scholarship in the name of Wendy Christensen will be awarded by violinist Elizabeth Pitcairn, who is executive director of the Luzerne Music Center in New York’s Adirondacks. The scholarship will support a four-week music summer experience for a young musician in 2022.
As a prelude to the fall and winter season, the society is hosting “Cocktails on the Terrace” at the Doylestown Country Club Saturday, Sept. 24. Pitcairn will play her legendary Red Mendelssohn Stradivarius and be accompanied by Sebastian Grand on piano and Noelle Casella Grand on cello. The society is seeking sponsors for the event.
