- "[Sara Buechner] played with fire and sparkle, her tone crisp and forceful. The big crowd gave her a long, heartfelt standing ovation." --Buffalo News
Join Oakland East Bay Symphony for opening night as they celebrate the rich, vibrant tradition of American music. They'll start with the captivating swing of Duke Ellington's hopeful, forward-looking New World A-Comin', with its vision of a post-World War II country in which oppression and racism no longer exist. The bubbly exuberance of Gershwin's An American in Paris captures the delight and wonder of an American visitor taking in the sights and sounds of Paris for the first time.
They're pleased to bring back the extraordinary pianist Sara Buechner for a performance of Bernstein's searching "Age of Anxiety," an unusual symphony featuring solo piano. Sara's powerful performance with OEBS in 2009 was a highlight of that season.
The concert also pays tribute to our neighbors south-of-the-border with Alberto Ginastera's wildly popular Estancia, a lively work incorporating themes from Argentinean cowboy music.
Audiences are invited to attend a pre-concert talk at 7:00pm.
