Musical Landscape: Traveling with the Orchestra (past performance)


Sunday, October 9 at 3:00 pm at FUMC 1338 E. Santa Clara Street, Ventura, CA 93003 (Directions)


Appalachian Spring: Suite  by Aaron Copland (Ballet version)

The Hebrides, Op. 26 (Fingal’s Cave) by Felix Mendelssohn

Symphony No. 4, Op. 90 in A Major (Italian) by Felix Mendelssohn

Serenade to Music by R. Vaughan Williams

KuanFen and the orchestra will take us on a trip to destinations in Europe, America and even the Universe! 

We will experience these destinations through inspirations of Mendelsohn, Copland and Vaughan Williams. The images will be formed in our minds, not by being there or seeing pictures, but by the brush of music.

Our trip will experience an archipelago off the west coast of Scotland as well as sights of Italy (Mendelssohn) and America (Copland) and the movement of the celestial bodies (Ralph Vaughan Williams).
