Patrick Flynn, Music Director and Conductor of the Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra presented a recorded preview of the Orchestra's upcoming presentation of the "Red Violin" and other pieces on February 18 at the Temple Theatre in Saginaw.

Guest Artist Elizabeth Pitcairn will perform John Corigliano's "Red Violin Chaconni", a "tremendous score, probably the best piece he wrote", which was written for the movie "The Red Violin". Pitcairn, a well known concert violinist and a leading violin teacher at USC in California, will bring the actual Violin on which the movie is based. Flynn believe this may be the first time that this instrument will be played in Michigan.

The Orchestra will also perform "Don Juan" by Straus, "Victory at Sea" by Rogers, and "Tannhauser Overture" by Wagner.

In conjunction with the concert, the movie "The Red Violin" will be screened at Bay City's State Theater with a reception across the street at A & J Galleries before and after the movie.
