Beautiful new podium for Maestro Ferrandis donated by Jim Lotter
Jim Lotter, an SRS subscriber of 30-plus years, knew that the Green Music Center provided a conductor’s podium, but discovered that Bruno Ferrandis needed something different in size and shape. Jim, an Air Force fighter pilot by profession who has worked in remodeling, carpentry and home design, collaborated with a furniture maker, Barry Semegran, to build a maple wood and fir podium that made its debut at the SRS October concerts.
Jim described the features: “The podium has an attached music stand with both rigid and adjustable posts, with stylish knobs and a clear acrylic tray. When it’s being stored, these pieces are removed and fastened underneath the podium box, which rides on its side on its own dolly. The optional safety rail also fits on the dolly. The whole thing is very compact and easily movable.”A brass plaque on the orchestra side of the podium reads “The Herb Lotter Memorial Podium” in honor of Jim’s father. Thank you, Jim, for your generous and elegant gift.
