California Youth Symphony March 23, 2014
The CYS Senior Orchestra continues its exploration of American symphonic masters with works by Gershwin, Creston and Harrison, as well as Richard Strauss's 1888 dazzling masterpiece Don Juan. Join our CYS Percussion Director Arthur Storch as he leads the orchestra in the CYS premiere performance of Lou Harrison's A Parade, which features a tantalizing combination of both Western and Eastern musical influences and instruments. Our 2013 Young Artist Competition winner Adrian Lin will perform Paul Creston's brilliant Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra, and the program will conclude with the ever-popular Symphonic Picture from Porgy and Bess, arranged in 1942 by George Gershwin's close friend and associate Robert Russell Bennett. Bennett chose many of the most famous songs and melodies from the opera, including Summertime, I Got Plenty O' Nuttin', Bess You Is My Woman Now, and It Ain't Necessarily So, to create an enthralling compendium of the opera's greatest "hits". Don't miss this eclectic and entertaining concert!
