From the mountain towns of America.
Copland’s Appalachian Spring was composed as a ballet. Martha Graham’s tale of a wedding in rural America was an instant classic, and Copland later revised the music to fit concert hall programs– the version most of us have heard. Come hear the music in its rarely-performed original version. It's our “Simple Gift” to you!
To the wooded wilderness of ancient Greece.
Revel in the mythic fantasy of Artemis, Christopher Theofanidis’ musical retelling of the ancient Greek story about the goddess who defied her father to save her lover.
Between environment and imagination.
Be among the first to hear a new work by Pulitzer-winning composer John Luther Adams. Inspired by his experiences living in the Sonoran Desert, there is no one, not even the wind invites you to ponder the importance of space and solitude.
This is Music that connects us with our world.
5 Facts About John Luther Adams
April 14, we're performing the California premiere of Grammy- and Pulitzer-winning composer, John Luther Adams' new work, 'there is no one, not even the wind'. Discover five facts about this amazingly talented man.Posted by Redlands Symphony on Thursday, March 22, 2018
The performance of Mozart's 40th was amazing. How Maestro Wilson conceived and brought forth the intensity, tension, and considerable emotion moved me deeply. The orchestra's discipline and preciseness were astonishing. When you've got only two horns, two oboes, two bassoons, and two clarinets, there's no room to fudge the pitch in the opening note of a phrase. I loved the way the horns and basses supported and colored the melodies.
As you can tell, I'm not a musician, but I am a huge Mozart fan. I'm also a huge fan of the Redlands Symphony and count myself fortunate to be able to attend a local concert of such glorious music.
