Enlightenment Festival: A Visit from Haydn

Friday, Feb 23, 2024 from 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM - Other

Patrick Dupre Quigley, Conductor

A special visit to the Esterházy palace by war hero Admiral Lord Nelson and his mistress, Lady Emma Hamilton, inspired this concert of works by Haydn. Amateur soprano and scandalous socialite Lady Hamilton struck up a friendship with Haydn and they performed together multiple times during her stay at Esterházy. The palace’s resident composer, Haydn provided entertainment for the diplomatic visit with the premier of the Te Deum for the Empress Marie Therese and two works dedicated to Lord Nelson: Missa in angustiis (later coined the “Nelson” Mass) and the song “The Battle of the Nile,” with Emma singing. Step back in time to relive the political and social intrigue of Haydn’s time in a concert for chorus and chamber orchestra that will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a salon at the Austrian palace.

Featuring UCLA Ensemble Artist Program students.

IlluminArts and Oolite Arts present: Nice Work If You Can Get It

Sunday, Mar 10, 2024 at 3:00 PM - English

IlluminArts and Oolite Arts present their sixth annual collaboration, a musical performance inspired by Amidst Twin Suns, a new exhibition by Oolite Arts resident artist Alberto Checa. Checa moved from Cuba to Miami with his mother in 2008 where they lived for years in efficiency apartments as his mother performed back-breaking factory work to make ends meet.

"Amidst Twin Suns" is both a labor of love and an exploration of labor, where Checa empathizes with his mother and critiques the American economic system and working class Latinos' relationship to it through art and performance. This musical performance, titled "Nice Work If You Can Get It," will take audiences on a deep dive into the themes of love and labor that Checa's art explores. Acclaimed bass-baritone Jamal Moore, who, in addition to his work in the operatic and choral worlds, is a frequent collaborator with artists like Beyonce, Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, will take center stage to perform a collection of deeply moving spirituals set by Harry T. Burleigh alongside lush and captivating works of Margaret Bonds, George Gershwin and more. In addition, IlluminArts will present the world-premiere performance of a stunning new piece for String Quartet and Electronics from GRAMMY Award-nominated violinist and composer Curtis Stewart, and works from Frederic Rzewski and Mason Bates.

Pictures of Checa's artwork will be projected throughout this performance. There will also be a conversation between the artist and Chad Goodman, IlluminArts' Artistic Director at the beginning of the performance.

RSVPs for the general public will begin on February 5, 2024.

Beethoven and Andrée

Saturday, Apr 6, 2024 from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM - English

Beethoven Piano Trio No. 1 in E-flat major, Op. 1 No. 1 (1795) and Andree Piano Trio #2 in G minor (1877).

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) was a German composer and pianist. Beethoven remains one of the most admired composers in the history of Western music. Despite the Op. 1 designation, these trios were not Beethoven's first published compositions. Clearly he recognized the Op. 1 compositions as the earliest ones he had produced that were substantial enough (and marketable enough) to fill out a first major publication to introduce his style of writing to the musical public.

Elfrida Andree (1841-1929), was a Swedish organist, composer, and conductor. An activist in the Swedish women's movement, she was one of the first female organists to be officially appointed in Scandinavia. She began work in Stockholm in 1861 and became the organist at Gothenburg Cathedral in 1867, where she remained the organist until her death. In 1897 she was named leader of the Gothenburg Workers Institute Concerts, establishing her reputation as the first Swedish woman to conduct a symphony orchestra. For her services, she was elected to the Royal Swedish Academy of Music.

Mid-Century Modern - Church of the LIttle Flower

Friday, Apr 26, 2024 from 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM - Other

James K. Bass, Conductor
Furniture or architecture might come to mind when one hears the phrase mid-century modern, but the creative style also impacted the music of the time. Inspired by rapid technological advancements and a post-war world, artists in the mid-20th century strove to predict and create the art of the future. Composers like Arnold Schoenberg experimented with new sounds and compositional techniques. At the same time, others like Alan Hovhaness and Samuel Barber returned to styles of the past with new understanding. You'll likely discover a mid-century work you've never heard before on this program for a cappella chorus.

Join us for a Pre-Concert Conversation 1 hour before the concert with Dr. Brad Diamond, tenor!
