Opening Night: Celebrating Democracy
This exciting all-American program celebrates democracy in action and the conclusion of the 2012 Presidential election. The concert will open with an exuberant fanfare by African-American composer Adolphus Hailstork and an orchestrated version of one of Bay Area composer Gordon Getty’s earliest piano pieces. OEBS's new principal clarinetist Bill Kalinkos will be the soloist for Aaron Copland's Clarinet Concerto, a work commissioned by jazz clarinetist and bandleader Benny Goodman. Preeminent local composer and UC Berkeley Professor Emeritus Olly Wilson’s Episodes for Orchestra and Bernstein’s lively Symphonic Dances from West Side Story will wrap up the evening.
