Event Program (PDF)

Third installment in La Jolla Symphony & Chorus's yearlong Stravinsky survey is a program of stark - and very beautiful - drama. The program opens with Verdi's searing overture to bloody revenge (Overture to La Forza del Destino) and concludes with Brahms' mighty First Symphony. Between them comes John Adams' setting of Walt Whitman's poem about tending the wounded of the Civil War (The Wound Dresser) and this season's Thomas Nee Commission winner: Nicholas Deyoe's still getting rid of. Conducted by Steven Schick. Nee was a founding faculty member in UCSD's Department of Music who conducted LJS&C for 31 years.
