May12

VCS Radio Symphony LIVE

Vacaville Performing Arts Theater, 1010 Ulatis Drive, Vacaville, Ca.

Alexander Arutiunian -- Concerto for Trumpet

Arutunian, a composer of Armenian descent, was profoundly influenced by the folk music of his homeland but this is an entirely original piece meant to evoke the flavor of Armenia – without borrowing the meat of the dish. With a “flashy...gypsyish, Russian, Armenian kind of sound, with very soulful, beautiful melodies...”, the piece focuses on the trumpet and percussive instruments.

Featuring sophomore trumpeter, Kaden Connelley.

Ludwig van Beethoven -- Overture 3: Leonore Opus 72

Rounding out our performance season is a singular work by the Master, Ludwig van Beethoven. This year commemorates the 250th birthday of a beloved composer known throughout the world. This piece, however, is not so widely known. It comes from his one and only Opera, “Fidelio” which tells the story of passionate and triumphant marital love and the struggle for liberty and justice.

Thomas Edison's Land Beyond the Sunset (1914) –

A short film produced by Edison Studios This monumental and important 14 minute film tells the tragic story of Joe, a young and impoverished newsboy and his yearning for a better life. The students of the VCS Radio Symphony will be developing a piece to accompany this film and look forward to presenting this work at their final performance in May of 2020.
