A wonderful performance of Terry Riley's "In C." Composed in 1964, In C is a semi-aleatoric piece for any number of players. Our performance will have approximately 30 players, consisting of strings, woodwinds, brass, electric instruments, and percussion. Riley composed the pieces as a response to the abstract academic serialist techniques used by composers in the mid-twentieth century. It is widely considered the piece that sparked the minimalist style of composition. Also on this concert will be a number of solo pieces that demonstrate different styles of composition in the 20th and 21st century. Abstract but accessible, and enjoyable to the casual or serious listener. This event promises to deliver extreme joy and satisfaction to the audience (and to the performers!). Free. Email or call for more info: Cheri Cole 909 262 6837 firstname.lastname@example.org I hope to see you there THE FIRST HALF FEATURES 20th/21st century performances by: Cheri Cole, Vladimir Rufino, Agnes Schwartz, Moses Sun, Cindy Anne Broz and Carolyn Li.

The West Covina Symphony returned to the musical scene just 2 years ago after a lengthy absence of about 20 years. In spite of challenging times, the symphony has triumphed, completing an exciting inaugural season in 2008/9, and continuing to grow through the 2009/10 second season. Now in it's third season, the orchestra is again presenting a complete series of full orchestra concerts, and also presents world-class chamber music concerts, holiday concerts and other special events. Recent highlights include the "East Meets West" concert this past August, which celebrated music and musicians of many of the cultures of our diverse community, and the Free LA County Fair performance, at which Dr. Mann was honored as the 2010 "West Covina Community Hero" for her work with the symphony and the arts in our community. The educational outreach program, which makes free concerts available to local schools, is in full swing, and the West Covina Music Academy is well underway, as is the orchestra's "Young Artists Concerto Competition". After years of desolation, the East San Gabriel Valley once again has a fully functioning Symphony Orchestra.
