San Diego Festival Chorus: Musical Journeys

San Diego Festival Chorus presents its spring concert: The “Requiem” and songs from “West Side Story” and “The Wizard of Oz”.   The “Requiem” comes from the Englishmen, John Rutter.  It is a contemporary masterwork, a beautiful, simple requiem with an appeal  to all who hear it. From the amazing team of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim comes “West Side Story”, an American musical that reflects issues of race and class in America’s 50s and 60s.the 50’s.  “The Wizard of Oz” story comes from the famous book and the delightful, singable songs from the the 1939 movie of that name.  These two are recent choral arrangements and share the enduring theme of American hopes and dreams.

Season-Opener: Beethoven’s 5th!

Conductor Steven Schick opens the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus’s 62nd season with the most famous music ever written, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. The classic monumentality of the Fifth contrasts sharply with the steamy sensuality of Alexander Scriabin’s Poem of Ecstasy. Also on the program are colorful sketches of newer musical landscapes: Icelander Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s beautiful Aeriality and Bryce Dessner’s Lachrymae.

A free pre-concert lecture is given by the conductor one hour prior to concert times. Campus parking is free on Saturdays and Sundays. Ticket prices: $15-$29. For more information or to purchase tickets call (858) 534-4637 or visit our website at www.lajollasymphony.com.
