April 2020


Resolved to do everything we can to exercise caution and promote a speedy containment of Corona virus (COVID-19) in our community, we have postponed the performances of Sea Pictures and Jubilate Deo.

Sea Pictures composed by Sir Edward Elgar for voice and orchestra includes five songs written by various poets. The first part of the program features mezzo-soprano Louise Lofquist.

Jubilate Deo composed by Daniel Forrest brings to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands.” This program is a partnership between the orchestra and  Channel Islands Choral Association, featuring the Choir of the California State University at Channel Islands. The power of combining full orchestra with large choir is mind-bending and a rare experience. This program is a confluence of the myriad skills of Artistic Director, KuanFen Liu. It is a combined result of her considerable talents in both orchestral and choral conducting.
