It's been quite an adventure! After visiting Davies Symphony Hall earlier this year to hear the famous San Francisco Symphony, our students set out to recreate the performance in Vacaville.
They will perform Richard Strauss' Don Juan, that so inspired the students to dig into the musical world of the tone poem. Strauss' work is so complex and dramatic that it tells an independent story without any need for an aural introduction or printed explanation. His themes are iconic and beautiful. Many folks know Richard Strauss' work. One of them was famous for the opening of the movie, 2001.
The concert, at The Vacaville Performing Arts Theatre, represents many hours of time and commitment on the part of the young aspiring artists! Hearing Richard Strauss' Don Juan is a unique experience; that it's performed by students in the 12th grade and as young as the 5th grade is miraculous!
Join the adventure!
