William Hill, Principal Timpanist/Composer with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra and his daughter Nadya Hill (soprano) will perform a Benefit Recital for the Evergreen Chamber Orchestra.

Tickets are $30 each. The recital will be held at Wanda and Larry Beck's home in the Foothills west of Demver. (Call for directions- (303) 526-2979).
Seating is limited, and tickets may be purchased ahead of time. They can be purchased at the April 21st Evergreen Chamber Orchestra concert or by calling the ECO answer line (303) 670-6558 and giving your credit card number or sending a check to: ECO P.O. Box 1371 Evergreen, CO 80437.
The Evergreen Chamber Orchestra is not your ordinary musical experience. In the beautiful setting of the Colorado Rockies, up to fifty musicians will delight you with music of all eras.
Our Sunday afternoon concerts will inspire and entertain you with music from the greatest classical composers like Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart to those of our own times such as Astor Piazzolla and John Williams. On special occasions we will tantalize you with top quality instrumental and vocal guests.
And, would you like to enjoy an afternoon of informal music with our musicians? Our recitals take place in the wonderfully intimate settings of private homes and the Center for the Arts Evergreen. You will be entertained by ensembles of our musicians and get to know them and their wonderful musical selections "up close and personal."
Throughout the year we also have special events for all ages. We would like to welcome you to our musical family and share our love of music.

Sunday afternoon, April 21, I attended a concert given by the Evergreen Chamber Orchestra. This is their thirty-first season, and I had never heard them perform before. It turned out to be quite an eye opening experience – this orchestra is a real gem, and I can assure you that on Sunday, they sounded better than some of the local community orchestras in the Denver/Boulder metro area. The orchestra was founded thirty-one years ago by Larry and Wanda Beck among others, and it is my sincere hope that the orchestra will continue performing for a another thirty years.
Sunday’s performance was Guest Conducted by William Hill, who should be no stranger to anyone in the country, as he is a prominent composer, and also Principle Timpanist with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.
