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.
