Idyllwild Arts will present the annual culmination performance of the Summer Chamber Festival Orchestra, and Festival Choir and Ensemble at Walt Disney Music Hall, home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
The IA Summer Music Program provides a unique experience for young artists attending intensive two-week programs led by world-renowned teachers, designed to offer outstanding musicians the opportunity to refine their skills. The performance will showcase some of the most talented high school students worldwide, ranging in age from 13 to 18, playing legendary classical works.
“Once again, on this grand stage, we will glimpse the future of classical music,” said Pamela Jordan, IA president. “But more importantly, this performance will fuel the dreams of these talented young musicians and give them the confidence to ignite their careers.”
Under the masterful batons of Maestros Larry Livingston, a world-renowned conductor celebrating 30 years as Idyllwild Arts music director, Dr. Joseph Modica and Assistant Conductor Sey Ahn, a technically-advanced repertoire, featuring music drawn from the last two centuries, has been designed.
Their selections include Strauss’ “Der Rosenkavalier Suite” and “The Journey of Harriet Tubman” by Ron Kean, which chronicles Tubman’s early life and her escape from slavery, set in a non-Western musical style.
The nearly two-hour performance takes place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 5, with a pre-concert VIP reception at 1:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased for $20 or $40 at https://www.idyllwildarts.org/disneyhall2018/.
