Mandeville Auditorium
For ticket information call 858-534-4637 or go to lajollasymphony.com

Guest conductor Michael Gerdes will lead the La Jolla Symphony and Chorus in a performance of:

  • Concerto for Flute by Carl Nielsen

  • Biennale Snapshots by Vivian Fung (U.S. premiere)

  • Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky

This performance will feature guest flutist Carlos Aguilar, the 2015 Young Artists winner.

Continuing the La Jolla Symphony and Chorus' season theme of music created during the midpoint of composers' careers, guest composer Michael Gerdes will lead the perennial favorite Pictures at an Exhibition, composed when Modest Mussorgsky was 35 years old. That should have been the midpoint of a great career, but–tragically–Mussorgsky was dead only seven years later. The La Jolla Symphony and Chorus Young Artists first place winner Carlos Aguilar will perform Carl Nielsen’s Flute Concerto, a very playful (and very funny) piece of music. Vivian Fung offers her own set of “pictures” in a colorful musical response to works of public art from the 2014-16 Vancouver Art Biennale.
