Reception at 5pm with wine and cheese, and 45-minute concert at 5:37pm!
The last concert of the MUTD season, The Fast Truth, will be a tour de force starting with Ian Clarke’s Maya, performed by gifted flute students Daniel Cruz and Jennifer Willis, who will collaborate with Susan Hoskins, our wonderful leader for the Schwob School’s collaborative piano area. Next are two pieces performed by Dr. Alex Avila, tuba/euphonium professor in the SSoM; first up is Fast Track by Patrick Cunningham followed by Drew Bonner’s A Moment of Truth, both extremely colorful pieces played with virtuosic strength. Up next is a classic: Igor Stravinksy’s Three Pieces for Clarinet, presented by excellent Schwob student Bradley Pilcher – these are wonderfully inventive works by one of classical music’s greatest voices. We’ll finish the season with Franz Liszt’s fiendishly challenging Spanish Rhapsody, played by Schwob graduate pianist Jiaqiu Song, and again, presented on our world-class Yamaha Disklavier instrument. Designs will be offered by composer/artist Jorge Variego, director of the Domino Ensemble and internationally renowned for his creative work.
