THE PAST YEAR 2021/2022
Last season was filled with concerts, guest artists, and outreach opportunities!
Our theme, CREATION focused on how composers have used the ideas from nature to portray the experiences we hear or celebrate during different parts of the year. Everything from waves crashes, wind blowing, to sensing the celebration of an autumn festival.
Two season concerts were performed both in the Fall:Sounds of Nature and Spring: Lands Beyond.
Additionally, we had the Lux String Quartet come to give a performance along with an indepth masterclass with the ensembles (Fall) and Keith Secola, Native American lecturer and song writer, join us to broaden our understanding of how the Native American culture is deeply connected to music and nature (Spring).
2022/2022 THEME: AFFLICTIONS OF HUMANITY
Humankind continues to experience many forms of afflictions - not all bad. However, some parts make us reflect on the conflictions we face throughout our lives. Next year's themes are FALL: Love & War and SPRING: Death & Transfiguration views these forms through the eyes of the composer.
Some of the selections will include parts of the 1812 Overture by Tchaikowsky (Fall) to Trauermusik by Hindemith (Spring).
