HEROES

In honor of those who cared for us

Steven Schick and Ruben Valenzuela, Conductors

We’ll start our year with Beethoven’s stirring paean to heroism, his Eroica Symphony, in a performance dedicated to the health-care professionals who risked their lives to care for us, to the thousands of essential workers who stocked food in grocery stores, drove delivery trucks, and picked up our garbage; to the teachers who taught patiently on Zoom, and to families who comforted the fears of loved ones, even as they themselves were uncertain and frightened. The program will begin with Pauline Oliveros’ beautiful Tuning Mediation, in an improvisation shared with the audience. We’ll then follow that with the powerful and inspiring Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman, by Joan Tower. Finally, we’ll welcome the return of our friend, the extraordinary violinist, David Bowlin, as soloist in Bartok’s youthful First Violin Concerto, a work inspired by and dedicated to love.
