Farewell to Fiesta

With the help of some very special guests, the West Coast Symphony performed an array of classical pieces for hundreds of concert goers on Sunday for the 51st annual Fiesta concert at the Courthouse Sunken Garden. People of all ages brought picnic baskets and blankets while the 45-piece ensemble of brass, woodwinds, percussion and strings serenaded hundreds of Fiesta concert goers with movie themes, concertos and Spanish guitar. After performances from the Spirit and Junior Spirit of Fiesta, ballerina Emma Rodriguez, 5, also danced on the sunlit stage, but with a yellow dress and white tights.
