Description:

Maestra Marin Alsop and the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra take audiences on an intriguing journey; first with two works that reflect Chinese culture, then with two works of sheer power and energy. This evening's composers are Sebastian Currier, Huang Ruo, Jonathan Newman, and Joby Talbot. Wu Wei, considered the world's leading avant-garde sheng player, is featured soloist. A talkback with Alsop, composers and artist follows the concert.
