A Day With Berlioz Bartok & Bloch Viola! Viola! -- Sandy Eastman
Sandy Eastman will be providing LLCC members with yet another opportunity to attend his pre-concert class and the symphony "No Ties Allowed" dress rehearsal for the San Luis Obispo Symphony concert coming up in February.
There is a cost now to attend the Symphony rehearsals. At the PAC, adults must pay $15 and seniors (age 65 and older) must pay $10. The rehearsal is free to children.
On Saturday, February 7, the Symphony celebrates the mastery of violist Andrew Duckles with Berlioz's "Harold in Italy." In demand as a studio musician and soloist, Mr. Duckles performs this highly acclaimed work with your Symphony for the first time. This is a piece and a performance that can't be missed! The symphony and soloist will also be performing Bloch's "Concerto Grosso No. 1 for Strings and Piano" and Bartók: Romanian Folk Dances, BB 76.
Sandy will present a lecture about the composers and the performers who will be involved in the Saturday dress rehearsal and the evening orchestra performance. Then you will join Sandy and attend the San Luis Symphony for the No Ties Allowed Dress Rehearsal of that performance for the Classics in the Cohan series.

This course will be in two parts. In the morning, there will be a lecture about the composers, about the pieces that are to be played in the rehearsal, and about the soloists. In the afternoon, the class, as a group, attends the dress rehearsal of the performance. At the dress rehearsal SLO Symphony conductor Mike Nowak will speak as he conducts, giving background information, musicology, and notes on harmony. With Mike's broad knowledge and stage presence, the dress rehearsals are fairly comprehensive.

The morning class will be at the Ludwick Center Assembly Room. The concert rehearsal will be in the Christopher Cohan Center in the PAC at Cal Poly.
