8:00pm A Nation Divided Orchestra Concert:
Our opening program tackles hard subjects: war, the abuse of power, peaceful resistance. In the view of Maestro Macelaru, music can and should say something about the struggles of our time, in real time. The program features works by composers Iván Enrique Rodríguez, Kevin Puts, Andrea Reinkemeyer, and Mason Bates—including three West Coast premieres. Also featured is soloist Katherine Needleman on oboe.
