The annual Grande Ronde Symphony Association’s Chamber Series concert in honor of Mr. Gene Rose, sponsored in part by the Leo Alder Foundation, will be held on Saturday, March 7, 2020 in the Haines United Methodist church located at 721 Roberts Street. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the performance will begin at 7:00 pm. Featured performer will be oboist Molly Trindle from Missoula, Montana. Ms. Trindle is a 2018 graduate of Montana University in Music Performance and currently seeking a graduate degree in oboe and music history. She picked up an oboe in the fifth grade, and since then she hasn’t been able to stop playing. She has performed with the Missoula Symphony Orchestra, the UM Symphony Orchestra, and the UM Symphonic Wind Ensemble, in addition to number of recitals of solo and chamber works. Her musical interests include making serious art music more accessible to a wider audience, and examining modern music that is overlooked by the academic world such as film and gaming music.

The Gene Rose Memorial Chamber Concert is being supported by a grant contribution to the Grande Ronde Symphony Association from the Leo Adler Foundation Community Fund. Mr. Gene Rose was a long-time friend of Mr. Adler and had served on the Leo Adler Foundation Board of Directors since its creation. Mr. Rose was also an enthusiastic member of the Haines United Methodist Church and often gave his opinions regarding the music selections. According to Alice Trindle, President of the Grande Ronde Symphony Association, “For us to be able to honor Gene’s memory with this oboe performance, which is a unique instrument rarely heard in solo performance, will be a wonderful tribute to Mr. Rose’s unique character.”
