Kjell Nordeson - Fluency
A conceptual concert on the theme of fluency.
 
Fluency, or lack thereof, is a decisive parameter in improvised music as well as in speaking. A flowing, seemingly self generating music, or a tentative stuttering, or a forward-leaning but disruptive delivery, all reflect the premises for the creative situation. Fluency is also related to musical style and personal idiom, where the level of fluency is  incorporated either deliberately or accidentally. This concert flows with various degrees of fluency.
 
Musicians: Kjell Nordeson - percussion
Judith Hamann - cello
Bonnie Lander - voice
Improvisations, and music by Felipe Rossi

La Jolla Symphony & Chorus ...on the nature of utterance
Saturday, June 6th, 2015
7:30 pm
Mandeville Auditorium
For ticket information call 858-534-4637 or go to lajollasymphony.com

David Chase conducts

Peter Tchaikovsky        Violin Concerto
Jonathan Dove            There Was a Child

Guest artist: Priti Gandhi, soprano; Annelle Gregory, violin; Edward Mout, tenor; North Coast Singers youth choir

Choral Director David Chase leads our season-ending concerts. Annelle Gregory, winner of the 2012 Young Artists Competition, plays Tchaikovsky’s great concerto, one of the most difficult ever written for the violin. There Was a Child, composed by Jonathan Dove in 2009, is a grand cantata in the spirit of Benjamin Britten and Ralph Vaughan Williams. Composed as a tribute to a young man who had died tragically, rather than dwelling in darkness, Dove’s oratorio inspires and uplifts. Setting texts by English and American poets, it is scored for soprano and tenor soloists, children’s choir, chorus, and orchestra.

PLEASE NOTE: As an experimental and new music department, much of our music is very intimate and quiet, for this reason, we request that students preparing concert reports refrain from writing or rustling papers during concerts.  We also respect the artistry of our musicians and adhere to a strict policy of NO LATE SEATING.  Guests arriving late may be turned away or will be asked to enter between pieces.
