The fourth concert of Mission Chamber Orchestra of San Jose's 24th season, Spotlight on Women, includes these points of interest:
California’s recent wildfires made such an impression on Leslie LaBarre, she wrote a movement about them in her California Suite.
Beethoven originally planned his third symphony as an homage to Napoleon when he thought Napoleon was a champion of equality and individual freedom.
As a child, Britten loved to spend time writing music. He wrote some of his melodies for Simple Symphony when he was only eleven, and completed the work at the age of 21.
