Sonoma State University Orchestra
Please join our new Director of Orchestral Activities, Alexander Kahn, as he leads the Sonoma State Symphony Orchestra in its very first concert! The program opens with an invitation to join the orchestra as it begins its historic journey: John Corigliano’s Invitation to the Voyage, a mesmerizing work for string orchestra based on a poem by Charles Baudelaire. The concert continues with a performance of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 14—generally considered to be the first of Mozart’s mature piano concertos—with SSU faculty member, Marilyn Thompson. On the second half of the program is another great first—Beethoven’s spritely and spirited Symphony No. 1.
