The Three Soloists!

Sunday, April 10th, 2016, 7 PM, Peace United Church of Christ, Santa Cruz
This concert features three dazzling, and very different solos. Trumpet soloist Barbara Hull is featured in André Jolivet’s Trumpet Concerto Number 2. It is a bold, aggressive and daring piece which balances on the border between jazz and the classics.
From the same composer, Soprano Lori Schulman will perform the Suite Liturgique, a lyrically gorgeous work that seeks to recreate the ancient modes of the classic Greeks.
Finally, another world premiere – this from favorite local composer Stephen Tosh, who has written the Concertino for Solo Violin and Ensemble specifically for Concertmaster David Dally and Ensemble Monterey.
Our Season Finale – May 14 and 15, 2016

A celebration of magnificent music for organ, brass, choir and percussion. Ensemble Monterey is joined by the vocal ensemble Cantiamo! in presenting some of the most powerful and awe-inspiring music ever written.
With organ soloist Tiffany Bedner at the keyboard, a large brass choir, voices and percussion, we perform a tour de force of majestic Renaissance works by Gabrielli, French romantic masterworks by Gigout and contemporary pieces culminating in Norman Dello Joio’s Hymn to Saint Cecilia, the patron saint of music.
Fanfare! is music to bring joy to your heart. Come enjoy a stirring season finalé with Ensemble Monterey and
Prepare to be Dazzled!
