While the saga of the legal fight between the Davidson family - a majority shareholder in the New Journal - our local independent newpaper, and minor shareholder, Cox Communications from Atlanta, is still unfolding, the music-lovers here and in Volusia County are getting the chance to honor the late Tippen Davidson, the Daytona Beach publisher who financed the major arts events in that part of the world for many years.

International Festival In Daytona BeachA concert series honoring Tippen Davidson is tied to the Daytona Beach International Festival featuring chamber music groups at locations across the area. It starts April 23.

Here's what is coming in this series according to the program:

Music from the British Isles
April 23, 7 p.m. - News-Journal Center at Daytona State College, Daytona Beach. Six London Symphony Orchestra musicians will offer a special chamber concert program that includes songs of love lost from Wales, melancholy ballads from Old England, jigs from Ireland, and the whirling ceilidh music of Scotland. The musical performances will be combined with readings from legendary British writers such as Dylan Thomas, Shakespeare and others. Tickets: $22.

Mozart's Letters
April 28, 7 p.m. - Athens Theater, DeLand. A five-piece LSO ensemble will lead an exploration of Mozart's life, including readings of his letters to family and friends during this travels through Europe, and performances of some of his most masterful works. Tickets: $22.

Mozart Quintets
April 29, 7 p.m. - Westminster by-the-Sea Presbyterian Church, Daytona Beach Shores. Six LSO members will offer a paradox of quintets.  The evening will begin with a Horn Quintet, a composition of balance and tonal beauty; written during what many consider the happiest period of Mozart's life. Following the first piece, the Viola Quintet will provide a rather dark and formidably moody piece, ending unexpectedly in jubilation. Tickets: $22.

International Festival In Daytona BeachBrasil Guitar Duo
April 18, 4 p.m. - Atlantic Center for the Arts, New Smyrna Beach. April 21, 7 p.m. - Palm Coast United Methodist Church, Palm Coast Partners João Luiz and Douglas Lora make up the brilliant Brasil Guitar Duo, which is quickly becoming one of the most preeminent guitar duos of their generation. Winners of the 2006 Concert Artists Guild (CAG) International Competition, the two have developed an extensive repertoire of classical guitar, as well as traditional music from Brazil. The duo most recently released the complete works for two guitars by composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco to commemorate the 40th anniversary of his death. Tickets: $20.

Hi Jon, Having lived in la for a lot of years,  think many do not associate it with the arts very much and that would be a huge misjudgment. This sounds very exciting and hope you get a chance to attend and support the series.

William - It is all arranged by my wife. She figures where to take me. She usually goes to more than one concert, and she takes our 17-y.o. grandson. He beats me because he can play the piano, and I can't. So he gets the best of it.

Hi Jon: Yeah, it's like me and my husband. He figures out where to go and takes me; otherwise, except for rock and roll concerts, I'd never get exposure to any other kind of music.

Patricia - you, as musician, can understand it better than many others. To make Daytona a vacation spot for London Symphony Orchestra since the 60s takes a special person. Not only with deep wallet, but with big heart.
