SJCO returns to indoor performances in San Jose’s newest small venue at St. Francis Episcopal Church in San Jose. (Comfortable seating, space for distancing, gorgeous acoustics). Featured works are by J.S. Bach, Jaco Wong, John Christopher Wineglass and João Luiz Rezende.
Emmy-award winning composer John Christopher Wineglass' work Alone Together is the composers’ response to the social issues we have all been facing during the pandemic, ranging from not being able to perform together to systemic racial disparities. Co-commissioned by the San José Chamber Orchestra, Fresno Philharmonic, Pacific and Monterey Symphonies, this will be the Northern California premiere. Wineglass is currently Composer-in-Residence with The Monterey Symphony.
Young Bay Area composer Jaco Wong’s somewhat metaphysical take on the function of time during quarantine, Olēka, commissioned by SJCO, receives its World Premiere performance.
The evening’s performance concludes with the West Coast premiere of João Luiz Rezende’s harp concerto Recife, an homage to the rhythms, dancers, and musicians from Recife in Brazil marrying elements of Baroque structure ‘with Brazilian elements’ and features harpist Bridget Kibbey.
