[Pre-concert talk with the composers at 2:15 pm.]

American music; three composers across three generations, all still alive! Genres range from opera to songs to intimate chamber music—

Derek Keller: California Tableaux, Act I
A thought-provoking opera that deals with the complexity of California’s multicultural history. The piece questions what it means to be a citizen of the US; who’s in and who’s out, and perhaps even what it means to be “American.”

Also on the program is a piece by San Francisco composer Mark Winges, and a duo by Karl Kohn, born in Vienna but emigrated to the US in 1939, an eminence of Californian music life who turned 90 last year.

$10 Students and Children, $20 Adults (Open Seating)
