September 16, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • Page 7 Ridgewood Symphony welcomes Conductor Arkady Leytush The Ridgewood Symphony Orchestra, now in its 70th season, is proud to announce the appointment of Maestro Arkady Leytush as its new artistic director/conductor. Maestro Leytush continues to have a distinguished career in America, Europe, and Russia. He was introduced to America in 1994 when, with a week’s notice, he made an impressive debut with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, replacing Yuri Temirkanov. Leytush’s conducting style has been described as being in the grand Russian tradition. His artistry and dynamic interpretations of the literature have made him an audience favorite. Since 1980, Leytush has worked with many fine orchestras including the New World Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, New York Chamber Orchestra, Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra, Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Orchestra Nacional Do Porto. Leytush is a conductor of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, principal guest conductor of the National Orchestra of Ukraine, and music director of the Rakhlin International Festival in Yalta. He is also a professor of conducting and orchestra at Long Island Conservatory. He is well known for his tran- scriptions and orchestrations of music by Bach, Buxtehude, Mussorgsky, Rachmaninoff, and Chopin. During last year’s season, Leytush led the Ridgewood Symphony Orchestra at one of its rehearsals. Orchestra members were deeply impressed by Leytush’s musicality, conducting style, knowledge, and ability to relate to the RSO’s volunteer players. There was great joy among orchestra members when it became known that Leytush would be available to lead the orchestra in its 70th season. Concerts this season will be on Nov. 20, 2009; and March 5, March 28, and May 7, 2010. Subscriptions for the four concert season are: regular, $70; senior, $50; and student, $35.

Conductor Arkady Leytush The ordinance that sets the length of time individuals may park in Ridgewood’s commercial district was adopted by the village council on Sept. 9. The ordinance will provide 112 12-hour parking spaces at the train station between Garber Square and the railroad bed, and 37 12-hour parking spaces at the Hudson Street lot, site of the former firehouse. Additional 12-hour spaces will be designated on the corner of Franklin Avenue and North Walnut Street, and at the park and ride lot on Route 17 from Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. At the Chestnut Street lot, 44 spaces will be designated Ordinance sets parking parameters for four-hour parking and 25 spaces will be designated for 12-hour parking. Parking in increments of three hours will be designated at the Hudson Street lot near South Broad Street, with 35 spaces, and at Van Neste Square and Prospect Street and at Walnut Street. The ordinance represents an attempt to operate Ridgewood shopping and commuter parking in a way that produces revenue instead of a deficit and which enables shoppers, diners, and all-day commuters to find adequate parking within the village.
