California Flower Power

Revel in this tribute to California, the Golden State, and musically embrace its experimental spirit, rich diversity, technological leadership, and counterculture. From Frank Zappa’s “Dogbreath” with banjo highlights, to “Avartan” by Reena Esmail, an LA-based young South Asian/American composer, to Mason Bates’ revolutionary electronic sounds with symphony orchestra, to a rich string solo played by Emil Miland on John Williams’ cello elegy, this evening will leave you inspired and proud to be a Californian.
