Making CONNECTIONS: Linking Music and the World Around Us at the Old Town Temecula Community Theater

2019 connections

Temecula Presents in association with the California Chamber Orchestra present the 2018-2019 Classical Music Series.  Join us for CONNECTIONS on SAT, APR 27, 2019 at 7:30 pm.

“We’re calling this concert ‘Connections,” says Dana Zimbric, Artistic Director and Conductor of the California Chamber Orchestra.  “Music is never composed or performed in a vacuum.  It’s all about the context.”

The concert includes three pieces of music that exemplify connections by composers, Debussy, Farrenc, and Respighi.  Debussy’s music will be familiar to the audience from its many uses in movies and television.  The ethereal flute solo performed by Pamela Vliek Martchev, a faculty member at San Diego State, Point Loma Nazarene, and the University of San Diego. 

Zimbric and the California Chamber Orchestra are committed to programming music composed by women and under-represented minorities.  “Farrenc’s music didn’t get the respect it deserved during her lifetime,” said Zimbric. “And it’s only fairly recently that orchestras like ours have been programming it more regularly.”

The idea of a concert featuring connections was an obvious one for Zimbric.  “I always try to put the music we perform in context for our audience,” she said.  “I’ll talk about the history and use art, literature, and photos to help listeners make the connections.”

Return to Temecula’s Theater to experience the remaining Classical Music Series concert with cellist Joshua Roman performing on SAT, MAY 25, 2019 at 7:30 pm in the Old Town Temecula Community Theater to close out Temecula Presents’ 14th Classical Music Season.
