Upcoming Performances: 5-30 And 6-1-2014

The Semester is coming to an end, and that means final ensemble performances! As with earlier, there are two separate shows each with very different groups and repertoire.

Friday, May 30: The Wind Ensemble opens the show at 7:30pm with music inspired by Japan, Spain, Scotland, and more! Conducted by Brian Hamilton. After intermission, the Beach Cities Symphonic Band performs under Dr. Gary Scott. (I am not a part of that group.)

Sunday, June 1: The Chamber Orchestra opens the show along with the String Quartet in music of Johann Christian Bach and Béla Bartôk. We will then be showcasing the two winners of our Concerto Competition with music for Horn by Dukas, featuring Christian Sequieros and Julie’s Song by Aaron Copland, featuring mezzo-soprano Carol Crocco. After intermission, the Symphony Orchestra will play the Fireworks by Igor Stravinsky and selections from Brahms 2nd Symphony.

Advance Tickets are available online for $10 General, $5 Student/Seniors/LBCC Staff. FREE for local High School students with ID. Go to for tickets. Tickets at the door are $12 General, $7 Student/Senior/Staff.

Upcoming Appearance: 5-10-2014

This Saturday, I’ll be appearing in a Double Bass Duet at Long Beach City College.

Saturday is our Music Day: we’ll be recruiting new music students and performing in chamber groups. It’s free to attend, whether to just watch the groups, or to audition for Fall 2014’s Applied Music Program.

We’ll start off with performances, including the Viking Singers, the Brass Ensemble, Saxophone Quartet, String Quartet, Bass Duet, and possibly more (the Clarinet Ensemble was also rumored at one point). Then we’ll break for lunch (FREE PIZZA), have Q & A throughout, and then the auditions. This is between 9am and 1pm.

Location: LBCC’s G Building (near the corner of Clark Ave and Harvey Way), Room 122. Parking SHOULD be free that day, but I can’t confirm.

E-mail Skye Angluo, Director of Choral Studies, at if you’re interested in auditioning, so you can get a time slot. You can audition for Classical or Jazz studies, please bring 1 to 2 contrasting pieces. You’ll have 5 minutes, and an accompanist will be provided.
