DESCRIPTION

For Closing Night of the 2016 season, Teddy Abrams continues the tradition of spotlighting the Britt Orchestra with an all-orchestral program. The concert starts with a repeat performance of the work Britt commissioned Michael Gordon to write in honor of Crater Lake National Park. The piece will be premiered at the park on July 29-30, and the Orchestra will bring the season full circle when the work is encored on the Britt hill.

Mason Bates’s Anthology of Fantastic Zoology was commissioned by the, and was premiered in June 2015. The piece is based on the book Book of Imaginary Beings by Jorge Luis Borges. It is made up of eleven interlocking movements, which the composer describes it as a “psychedelic bestiary” that is “teeming with strange creatures and wild sonic effects.”

The 2016 season closes with the colorful Pictures at an Exhibition. Composed by Mussorgsky as reflections on paintings on exhibition, and orchestrated by Ravel, the piece showcases the many colors of the orchestra, and closes with a grand, inspiring ending.
