Chattanooga Symphony Youth Orchestra Celebrates 20 Years with Gary Wilkes
The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Youth Orchestras (CSOYO) concludes their 2012-2013 season on May 6 at 7 pm at the Tivoli Theatre featuring all four orchestras and featured soloists, including Jay Craven (Chattanooga’s “Mr. Music”) and Thomas West (PAL Vocal Competition winner).
Many friends and alumni will be on hand to help Gary Wilkes celebrate his 20th anniversary with the CSO Youth Orchestras. One of those will be Jay Craven, former conductor of the youth orchestra when Gary was a student member. In 1966 Gary Wilkes played a solo as concerto competition winner with the youth orchestra with Jay Craven conducting. Now they are trading places! In addition, the selection that Jay Craven has chosen to play, “Concertino for Clarinet and Orchestra” by Karl Maria von Weber, is the very same selection he played in 1953 with the Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra when he was the student concerto competition winner.
The CSOYO Prelude and Etude Orchestras, conducted by Nichole Pitts, will open the concert. Following them will be the CSOYO Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sandy Morris. The program (with no intermission) will conclude with the CSOYO Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Gary Wilkes. Also featured on the program is the Performing Arts League Vocal Competition winner, Thomas West. Thomas was featured on a live broadcast of “From the Top” here in Chattanooga last year.

PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN'S WILL
NEW YORK (AP) -- Philip Seymour Hoffman had said he didn't want his children to be "trust fund kids." And his accountant says that's why the actor turned aside the suggestion that he set up a trust fund for his three children. The New York Post says a court-appointed lawyer for the children interviewed the accountant for the actor, who died earlier this year of a drug overdose. The accountant says Hoffman wanted his fortune, estimated at $35 million, to go to his longtime partner and the children's mom, Mimi O'Donnell.
"TYRANT" PRODUCTION MOVED FROM TEL AVIV
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- The current unrest in the Middle East has caused production of the FX's series "Tyrant" to pull up stakes. The show had been shot in Tel Aviv. But producer Howard Gordon says the show has since moved to Istanbul to resume production. Gordon tells a TV critics panel in California that when Tel Aviv began drawing missile fire, "people were running into bomb shelters." And he says while people on the set didn't feel "physically threatened," the atmosphere "was not conducive to shooting." The last two episodes of the show's first season will be shot in Turkey.
FORMER "50 SHADES" ACTOR AWAITS RESULTS
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- The actor who had the original lead for the movie version of "Fifty Shades of Grey" says he still believes in the film, even though he won't be in it. Charlie Hunnam says he's "really excited" to see the movie and is "really, really curious" to see how it turned out. Hunnam dropped out of the "Grey" project a month after he landed the role. He says he believes his replacement, Jamie Dornan, is "probably a lot better looking and a lot smoother" than he is. Though Hunnam says he wouldn't mind having his audition tape be part of a DVD extra for fans of the movie. The movie is due out next Valentine's Day.
