Kensington Symphony Orchestra Concert
The Kensington Symphony Orchestra, directed by Geoffrey Gallegos, and Luminescence Choir, directed by Bryan Baker, perform works by Mozart, Elgar, Sibelius, Hoiby, Vaughn Williams and premier two new pieces by Bay Area Composers, Mark Narins and Nicholas Carlozzi.
The Ball Game by Mark Narins a scene from Narins' full-length, mystical opera Theresa Kren. Villagers discover little Theresa has been brought back to life six months after her death and are horrified to find all of their children playing catch with her in the town's graveyard; featuring the Youth and Children's Choir of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley, Michèle Voillequé, director, and the Golden Gate Boys Choir and Bell Ringers, Steve Meyer, director.
When in Our Music by Nicholas Carlozzi a brand new work for piano, orchestra and chorus. Inspired by the idea of Beethoven's Choral Fantasy, this work brings an old folk tune into a new language, and features the composer as piano soloist.
Other featured soloists include
Marcelle Dronkers, soprano
Meghan Dibble, mezzo-soprano
Rod Lowe, tenor
Richard Fey, baritone
