Berkeley Symphony  Symphonic II: Clyne & Rachmaninoff

Berkeley Symphony's second symphonic performance of the 17|18 season will be a terrific set of twos and premieres! The program features a pair of West Coast premieres by Rene Orth and Music Alive composer-in-residence Anna Clyne. Pianist Conrad Tao returns to the Zellerbach stage by popular demand to perform Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini and Liszt's Totentanz under the baton of New Zealand-born conductor Gemma New. Recently named assistant conductor at the Cabrillo Festival, Ms. New is Music Director for the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra in Ontario, Canada and Resident Conductor for the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.
