There and Back Again
ECHO Chamber Orchestra begins its fifth season on Sept. 22 with a concert of four delightfully contrasting works at the First Presbyterian Church of San Anselmo.
The 7:30 p.m. program will include Rachmaninoffs Vocalise featuring soprano Wendy Loder; City Suite, a world premiere; Nonet, an 1849 work by the little-known Louise Farrenc; and the Third Symphony of Franz Schubert.
All are invited to the free Friends of ECHO Open Rehearsal and Conversation at 7 p.m. Sep. 21 to talk about the music with members of the orchestra.
Under the leadership of Music Director and Conductor Daniel Canosa, ECHO offers collaborative, community-minded programming. It performs three times a year and has earned accolades for its artistry and unorthodox approach to music-making.
City Suite is a collaboration between Canosa and ECHO bass player/composer Kevin Gordon. It was written specifically for the ECHO Chamber Orchestra and is loosely based on a baroque suite with each movement inspired by a different city, said Gordon.
A complimentary wine reception and art exhibition will take place after the performance.
