Pictures at an Exhibition
Join us for the 2015 – 2016 Season on a tour of a special exhibition – one where the paintings and portraits of people, places and poems are rendered in music. Representing galleries, each concert explores the various themes and artists typically found in an art exhibition.
Our opening concert at Gavilan College Theater on October 10 at 7:30, “PORTRAITS, PAINTINGS & POEMS”, features Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. This composition inspired the theme for the remainder of the season. The program also features resident, Christopher Niemann conducting his World Premiere composition, In the Halls of the Overlook; The Poet and Peasant Overture by Franz von Suppe and Smetana’s The Moldau.
