ROSSINI The Thieving Magpie Overture
VIVIAN FUNG Trumpet Concerto (Musica Nova Commission)
DEBUSSY Général Lavine, Rêverie, and Golliwog’s Cakewalk
One of Rossini’s most memorable and exciting opera overtures, The Thieving Magpie opens with an aggressive and militaristic theme followed by the drama and intrigue surrounding the theft of a silver spoon. This year's Musica Nova composer,Vivian Fung,is an award-winning composer with a unique talent for combining idiosyncratic textures and styles into large-scale works, reflecting her multicultural background. Her new Trumpet Concerto features Classical Trumpeter and award-winningMary Elizabeth Bowden. Vivaldi's Gloria is one of sacred music's most uplifting choral works. We are thrilled to share the stage with three stellar local soloists and Concert Choirs from four area high schools.
