My next concert performances are coming up next week. I will be singing in the Stanford Symphonic Chorus in Stanford’s annual Pan-Asian Music Festival, performing together with the Stanford Symphony Orchestra.
We will be singing Cosmic Solitude by Japanese composer Joji Yuasa (pictured here), along with Zoltán Kodály’s Missa Brevis. Stephen Sano will conduct the choral portion of the concert.
The first half of the program features Tan Dun’s Concerto for Water Percussion with soloist Haruka Fujii. This will be conducted by Jindong Cai. I’m looking forward to hearing this piece and learning what water percussion can sound like!
Performances are Friday, February 27 and Saturday, February 28 at 8:00 pm at Stanford Memorial Church. Tickets are available at the Stanford Ticket Office.
Meanwhile, JoAnn will be starting her two-week run of Orfeo ed Eurydice at West Bay Opera on Friday night. Performances are at 8:00 pm on February 20 and 28 and at 2:00 pm on February 22 and March 1. JoAnn will also be singing in the Stanford concert on the 27th.
