A Day With Mahler -- Sandy Eastman
Sandy Eastman is 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 May.
There is a cost now to attend the Symphony rehearsals. This cost to attend the rehearsal is not included in the price of the course on Brown Paper Tickets. At the PAC, adults must pay $15 and seniors (age 65 and older) must pay $10. The rehearsal is free to children. The tickets for the dress rehearsal will available about a week before the performance at the PAC box office or by calling them at (805) 7564849.
On Saturday, May 7, the Symphony will perform Mahler: Symphony No. 2, C Minor, Resurrection
Thomas Davies will conduct the Orchestra, the Cuesta Master Chorale, and the Cal Poly Choir. He has taught at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, since 1983. As director of choral activities and vocal studies, he conducts three choirs (PolyPhonics, The University Singers, Early Music Ensemble), teaches conducting, as well as a course in literature and rehearsal techniques.
Sandy will present a lecture about the composers 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 guest conductor Mr. Davies will speak as he conducts, giving background information, musicology, and notes on harmony. With his broad knowledge and stage presence, the dress rehearsal should be fairly comprehensive.

The morning class will be in SLO Library Conference Room. The concert rehearsal will be in the Christopher Cohan Center in the PAC at Cal Poly.
