The Grande Ronde Symphony Association is pleased to announce their third Chamber Series Concert on March 4, 2017 at the Haines United Methodist Church in Haines, Oregon.

Musicians performing on these various instruments will be Anthony R. Corig (Corigliano) and Angela Rosemeyer.

Anthony wrote his first composition in September of 1970 a piece entitled “The Death of Shiela” After some years of deliberation he determined to return and focus on his first love, the violin. Currently Anthony plays in a couple of local orchestra’s and has accepted some personal invitations to perform in Southern California. Mr. Corig is the owner of Direct Music Source in La Grande, where he teaches music. He is the lead jazz guitarist in Pendulum Swing, a local jazz band.
