La Jolla Symphony & Chorus
Come hear incredible musicians playing the classics and superb singers creating equally beautiful sounds at one of several upcoming concerts from the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus. Part of the University of California at San Diego, this well-respected group, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary season, will be presenting the music of Nathan Davis and Gustav Mahler on November 8 & 9, 2014. You'll enjoy the world premier of Davis's new work, "a Sound uttered, a Silence crossed," written with librettist Laura Mullen for 4 percussionists and a chorus. The Mahler piece being played is his Symphony No. 5, a veritable masterpiece. Guest artists are red fish blue fish.

The following month, from December 12-14, 2014, you'll be treated to William Grant Still's "Afro-American Symphony."
Composed in 1930, the symphony is the first major one by an African-American composer. To mark the 25th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein leading an orchestra of international musicians playing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony at the demolished Berlin Wall, the La Jolla Symphony will play the same exhilarating piece. Guest artists include soprano Natalie Mann, mezzo-soprano Peabody Southwell, tenor Enrique Toral, and bass Ron Banks. There's also a free Young People's Concert on November 7, featuring Mahler's Symphony No. 5 with commentary from conductor Steven Schick, who will be at the helm for all of the aforementioned events at Mandeville Auditorium on the UCSD campus.
