, conductor

This powerful musical program tells a story of vitality, loss, contemplation and possibility. The music of Jacques Press, Jack Stamp, John Williams, Francis McBeth, David Maslanka and Gustav Holst is combined to create a program that honors Holocaust Remembrance Day and Earth Day. Highlights include a specially constructed and memorable “Remembrance Suite” that includes John Williams’ Theme from Schindler’s List. The program also features two works by acclaimed American composer David Maslanka. In his description of one of the works, California, Maslanka says, “Music lets us dream, and in that dream is the possibility of a new world, one in which humans live in harmony, within themselves, with all other people, with all other species, with the planet…our dreams start somewhere, let our music making be that place.”
