Bloch Party!: Young People's Symphony Orchestra plays Ernest Bloch
Leading 20th century Swiss-American Jewish composer Ernest Bloch (1880-1959) lived for several years in the Bay Area, teaching at the San Francisco Conservatory and UC Berkeley and composing some of his most evocative works. This year, we present this special event to commemorate his 50th yahrzeit (anniversary of his death).
Californias oldest youth orchestra includes more than one hundred young musicians and a roster of many distinguished alumni, including cellist Bonnie Hampton. A student of Pablo Casals and currently a professor at Juilliard, Ms. Hampton performs Blochs Schelomo. Violinist Jeremy Cohen, a student of Itzhak Perlman, performs a klezmer concerto by Berkeley composer Arkadi Serper. Pianist Chloe Pang, 17, whose Carnegie Hall debut was nationally televised on PBS plays Gershwins Rhapsody in Blue.
