La Jolla Symphony & Chorus
Saturday, May 6th, 2017
7:30 pm
Mandeville Auditorium
For ticket information call 858-534-4637 or go to lajollasymphony.com

Guest composer Michael Gerdes will conduct 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.

ArtPower presents Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company

8:00 pm
Mandeville Auditorium
An ArtPower presentation.
Tickets handled by
UCSD Box Office
Ticket information: 858-534-TIXS (8497)

ArtPower will present a performance by the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company.

The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company was born out of an 11-year collaboration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, who passed away in 1988. During this time, the two dancers redefined the duet form and foreshadowed issues of identity, form and social commentary that would change the face of American dance. The Company has performed worldwide in over 200 cities in 40 countries on every major continent and is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the dance-theater world.

The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company returns to UC San Diego with Play and Play: An Evening of Movement and Dance, which includes two works—D-Man in the Waters and Story/. Both will be accompanied by live music.

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.
