Quotes & Highlights
- "In this way the starry heavens, seen from all over our planet, inspired us in making and presenting a multi-cultural, international music work." --Philip Glass
Since its world premiere performance at the Acropolis in Athens, Greece, Orion, a new work by Philip Glass (commissioned by the 2004 Athens Cultural Olympiad) will make its West Coast premiere as the centerpiece of the 2005 Eclectic Orange Festival. In collaboration with a group of renowned composers and performers from around the world, the evening-length work is intended to reflect the international character of the Olympiad itself.
Presented by the Philharmonic Society, Orion will be performed at the Orange County Performing Arts Center's Segerstrom Hall.
