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.

In an effort to conserve resources and reduce paper waste, we post our concert programs as electronic documents on this page (see listings, below). If you are not at a computer, you can easily access this page by scanning the QR code at right (for iPhones we recommend the Bakodo barcode scanning app). Programs for past concerts dating back to October 2008 are available in our concerts archive. Click here to connect with the archive.

Leslie Ann Leytham Dissertation Performance
Friday, May 23rd, 2014
8:00 pm
Mandeville Auditorium
Free

Vanity Run Amok isn’t a dissertation recital performed by a mezzo-soprano, it’s a TV variety show that features the best in contemporary conceptual performance art and music. Through multi-media works, live performance, and character study, Ms. Leytham hopes to reconcile the differences between her varied areas of expertise (pop music and television culture, classical singing, and contemporary score preparation), drawing inspiration from and offering a critical response to the performance practices inherent in each genre. Through this work, Leslie will give a bloated portrait of herself as an artist whose identity was immeasurably shaped by a very bizarre youth and early adulthood spent living in Las Vegas, NV, the place she can’t seem to stop calling home.

 

This performance piece will be shiny and obnoxious (that’s a good thing), featuring design by Anna Chiaretta Lavatelli and Ms. Leytham, and starring the inimitable Brendan Nguyen as the charismatic, yet aloof host. Vanity Run Amok will also feature music by Clinton McCallum, Nicholas Deyoe, Lenny Bruce, Bonnie Lander, Ambroise Thomas, Beat Furrer, Robert Pierzak, and Leslie Ann Leytham.

 

NOTE: This performance will be broadcast live on television and the internet, and seats in the studio audience are first-come, first served.

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

Steven Schick and David Chase lead our final program of the season. We open with Janacek’s impassioned Zarlivost (“Jealousy”), originally the overture to his opera Jenufa, and close with the classical proportions and high spirits of Haydn’s final symphony, his “London Symphony.” David Chase concludes his fortieth-anniversary season by leading Cary Ratcliff’s expansive setting of Pablo Neruda poems, scored for three vocal soloists, a virtuoso guitarist, chorus, and orchestra.
