FEBRUARY 11-12, 2023- LEARNING TO FLY

STEVEN SCHICK MUSIC DIRECTOR EMERITUS, CONDUCTOR

We welcome back Steven Schick to conduct this exciting concert. Mary Kouyoumdjian, UCSD alumna and celebrated composer often described as “politically fearless,” will be this year’s Brenda and Steven Schick commission honoree. The orchestra will then present Stravinsky’s energetic Firebird Suite, a work whose premiere was so successful it catapulted the composer to international fame. We will then share Varèse’s work, Octandre, followed by American operatic soprano, and UCSD faculty member, Susan Narucki performing Strauss’ Four Last Songs.
