A Line Broken

La Jolla Symphony: A Line Broken

Steven Schick conducts

Rand Steiger Template
Courtney Bryan Yet Unheard
Ornette Coleman/arr. A.T. Chodos Lonely Woman
Gabriel Fauré Requiem

Guest artists:  Helga Davis and Priti Gandhi, sopranos; Patrick Walders, baritone; Peter Evans, trumpet; Mark Dresser, contrabass

Some lines end too soon. The spiritual crux of this program is Courtney Bryan’s poignant memorial to Sandra Bland and other African-American victims of violence. We’ll pair her music with improvisation in Rand Steiger’s Template — a new orchestra version for trumpet-genius Peter Evans, and a new arrangement by Asher Tobin Chodos of Ornette Coleman’s late be-bop classic. Chorus joins orchestra as we remember the victims of violence with Fauré’s gentle Requiem.
