"I usually try to feature a composer, and this year I chose Tchaikovsky," he said.

Along with directing Symphony in the Valley, Elias is director of strings and orchestra at Colorado Mesa University and concertmaster of the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra. He is continually impressed with the level of talent in the Symphony in the Valley.
"I think that the orchestra is getting better and better in each concert," he said. "I have seen the improvement of the orchestra throughout the five years that I have been their music director."
Comprised wholly of volunteer musicians, Symphony in the Valley is a prime example of the community working together to bring world-class arts to the public, Elias said.
"All the members of the orchestra are local musicians who donate their time and effort every week to produce these concerts," he said.
...
Elias said his commitment to helping continue community symphony music in the Roaring Fork Valley is affirmed as he watches the musicians develop each concert from square one.
"I enjoy the process of preparing the orchestra from the first rehearsal to the concert and see the weekly improvement," he said.
