Celebrating the British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), this concert will be a glorious combination of the human voice and orchestra. Featuring guest soloists, the UCLA Chorale, UCLA Chamber Singers, and UCLA Philharmonia, all conducted by Neal Stulberg, the concert begins with one of the most famous and well-loved string orchestra works in the repertoire, "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.” (For this work, Philharmonia is joined by the high Renaissance Arts Academy string ensemble). It continues with his amiable 1954 Tuba Concerto, performed by UCLA's faculty tubist Aubrey Foard. Two large works for chorus and orchestra inspired by Walt Whitman texts complete the program: the majestic "Towards the Unknown Region,” the composer’s first major choral work; and the searing multi-movement cantata, "Dona Nobis Pacem,” a heartrending cry for peace.
Tickets are $15 general admission and $10 for UCLA faculty, staff and students with valid ID.
Tickets may be purchased by calling the UCLA Central Ticket Office at 310-825-2101 or at the door.
Parking for Royce Hall is in UCLA Lot 5--CAMPUS MAP
Made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund
Classical music was a passion of Drs. David and Irmgard Dobrow, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2016-2017 Dobrow Series.
