Event description

Description

Composers have often used the expressive nature of the string orchestra to evoke nostalgic memories of places dear to them. In this program, we bring you several contrasting examples of this idea. Chiayu Hsu explores urban and natural aspects of life in Taiwan, Sahba Aminikia draws inspiration from a 2009 street riot in Tehran, and Charles Ives reflects on favorite church hymns of his youth. Also on the program are a world premiere by our composer-in-residence and a piece by Texas-based composer Minho Yoon.

Program

  • Chiayu Hsu - Taiwan Miniatures

  • Sahba Amanikia - One Day; Tehran

  • Julie Herndon - new work (world premiere)

  • Charles Ives - Largo Cantabile “Hymn”

  • Minho Yoon - new work

  • Annual call-for-scores winner
