The memorial concert for Auburn Symphony Maestro Michael Goodwin will be broadcast live on Auburn Community Television beginning at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 11.

TouchDown Productions of Grass Valley has stepped up to provide the technical equipment for the broadcast, which will be screened at the State Theater, 985 Lincoln Way, Auburn, and on WaveCable Channel 20.

Goodwin, who conducted the symphony for 17 years, died in a car crash in February. The memorial concert will be conducted by Goodwin’s colleague Pete Nowlen and will feature pianist Konstantin Soukhovetski, the soloist at Goodwin’s last concert in Auburn.

The free memorial concert at the Placer High School auditorium reached capacity less than 24 hours after tickets were released. In order to accommodate the demand to participate in this memorial, the Auburn Placer Performing Arts Center will open the State Theater for the free live broadcast.

Tickets are required, with a very limited number available. Call the symphony office at (530) 823-6683 to reserve.
