March 14-15, 2020

Steven Schick and Michael Gerdes, conductors

Benjamin Britten War Requiem

Guest artists: Ariana Strahl, soprano; John Buffet, baritone; John Russell, tenor; boys choir, San Diego Master Chorale

The cathedral in Coventry, bombed into rubble during the Battle of Britain, lay in ruins for years afterward.  For its rebuilding in 1961, Benjamin Britten composed his War Requiem, which splices the poetry of Wilfred Owen–who was killed in World War I–into the Requiem Mass for the Dead. 

 

Concert sponsors: Claire Friedman / Beda & Jerry Farrell / Pat & Eric Bromberger/ Gary & Susan Brown/ Arleene Antin & Lenny Ozerkis

Resident Fine Artist: Jay Wolf-Schlossberg Cohen

Date:
March 14-15

Meet Jay Wolf Schlossberg-Cohen Fine artist Jay Wolf Schlossberg-Cohen is in his fourth season as artist-in-residence at La Jolla Symphony & Chorus. Jay sketches live performances in pen and ink, later adding
watercolor, to capture the excitement of live performance. He will be live painting at our March concert. Jay, who lives in Baltimore and works with other nonprofits such as the Baltimore Symphony, generously donates his work to LJS&C to help support our organization. Like the illustration which graced our 2017-18 Season Brochure, each image is full of life and  memories of our concerts. Past images auctioned at our annual Gala have raised thousands of dollars for LJS&C.
