The Arlington Philharmonic Orchestra presented its annual Family Concert on March 28, 2021 in a virtual format. After Music Director Orlando Cela presented “The Instruments of the Orchestra”, the concert featured Pasquale Tassone’s “How Bear Lost His Tail”, a musical storybook based on a Native American folktale, with illustrations by artist Abby Cali and narration by Jeff O’Neil. Be sure to check out The "How Bear Lost His Tail" Gallery HERE, with artwork submitted from Arlington Public School students in anticipation of this concert! Other recorded works featured cello soloist and Young Artist Competition winner Haley Kwoun playing Saint-Saens’ “Allegro Appassionato” Op.43, and  “Estampas Mexicanas” by José Elizondo, with an explanation from the composer himself on how he writes his music. This program was supported in part by a grant from the Arlington Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
