The CYS Orchestra’s 72nd season, under the baton of Music Director Leo Eylar, presents a riveting season opener on Sunday, November 5, 2023, at 2:30 pm, joining other orchestras and ensembles throughout the state for the California Festival: A Celebration of New Music. Featuring the world premiere of Memorias Argentinas by noted Argentinian composer Valeria Pelka, the piece is three-movement work inspired by the African roots of much Argentinian folk music: in particular, the chacarera, zamba, and malambo. Eighteen-year-old Young Artist Competition winner Rin Homma performs Ravel's jazz-inspired Piano Concerto in G Major. The concert also includes Falla's Final Dance from The Three-Cornered Hat and closing the exciting program is the ultra-romantic Symphony No. 1 by Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.
