Event Program (PDF)

The UC San Diego Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Alex Taylor, present their final concert for the 2023-24 season features Beethoven's iconic fifth symphony with its revolutionary motto and powerful instrumentation, expanding the symphony orchestra with trombones, piccolo and contrabassoon. We are delighted to collaborate with graduating DMA pianist Shaoai Ashley Zhang on Mozart's sparkling piano concerto in E-flat, and also showcase the atmospheric music of one of UC San Diego's talented graduate composers, Akari Komura. Wenpeng Gao, preparing his conducting portfolio for graduate school, will lead Weber's der Freischütz overture, a characterful opener by turns pastoral and demonic. 

Akari Komura - Weaving Air (world premiere)
Carl Maria von Weber - Overture to Der Freischütz (conducted by Wenpeng Gao)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Piano Concerto no. 22 in E-flat major - Shaoai Ashley Zhang soloist
Ludwig van Beethoven - Symphony no. 5 in C minor
