Jesse Cook
With his astounding guitar technique and sultry rhythms, Jesse Cook is a master of the contemporary rumba flamenca sound. Tracing this musical tradition from its roots in Cuba and South America to its present Spanish home, he smoothly blends the many influences into a bewitching sound that has propelled him to the forefront of this international style. Those new to the intoxicating Latin rhythms of rumba flamenca will be quickly placed under the spell of Cook’s passionate guitar work, Moorish rhythms, and smoldering on-stage charisma.

Livermore-Amador Symphony Concert - Guest Conductor Potpourri: Dawn Harms

Sat
Livermore-Amador Symphony  - Guest Conductor Potpourri: Dawn Harms
* Copland: Fanfare for the Common Man
* Verdi: Overture to La Forza del Destino
* Mendelssohn: String Symphony No. 1
*Higdon: Blue Cathedral
* Saint-Saëns: Symphony No. 3 ("Organ")

Dawn Harms, guest conductor

The Golden Season's third program opens with Aaron Copland's famous "Fanfare for the Common Man", arguably the most stirring and famous fanfare ever written. Verdi's overture to La Forza del Destino (The Force of Destiny) explores the currents of nature, nurture, and free will in a rich tapestry of beautiful melody and orchestration. Written when he was just 12, Mendelssohn's sparkling and joyous First String Symphony brilliantly captures his evocative and tuneful spirit. In contrast, the mature Saint-Saëns' "Organ Symphony" represents what the composer knew to be the zenith of his symphonic compositional career: of it, he said, "I gave everything to it I was able to give. and tuneful spirit. In contrast, the mature Saint-Saëns' "Organ Symphony" represents what the composer knew to be the zenith of his symphonic compositional cWhat I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again."

Guest conductor Dawn Harms leads an active musical life as a violinist, violist, chamber musician, and conductor. A member of the San Francisco Opera Orchestra and associate concertmaster of the New Century Chamber Orchestra, Harms also performs as co-concertmaster with the Oakland East Bay Symphony. She was chosen to be one of the fellows at the exclusive American Academy of Conducting at the Aspen Music Festival, where she worked with some of the top conductors in the world. Harms is the co-founder and music director of the Music at Kirkwood chamber music festival and currently serves on the music faculty at Stanford University.

Valley Concert Choral - Songs of Serenity

Valley Concert Choral - Songs of Serenity
The Valley Concert Chorale will perform the highlight concert of its 49th season featuring the music of two of the choral world's most renowned and creative contemporary composers Maurice Durufle and Morten Lauridsen. Las Positas College Chamber Choir will join the Chorale. Performance details are as follows: "Songs of Serenity"; Saturday, April 13, 2013, 7:30 pm; First Presbyterian Church, 2020 Fifth Street, Livermore.

"We will perform the Durufle Requiem and Lauridsen's Lux Aeterna, two of the most deeply moving contemporary choral pieces ever written," says VCC Artistic Director John Emory Bush. Las Positas College Chamber Choir, under the direction of Robert Lappa will perform with VCC. "These two pieces are favorites of choral singers and audiences all over the world, and whether you are a fan of choral music or not, after experiencing these two incredible pieces, you will be."

Durufle's Requiem is known as one of the most beautiful among choral masterpieces, says Bush. "Based on Gregorian chants and colored to influence the era of Impressionism, this piece is similar to the tones and melodic lines of Debussy. Think of your favorite Impressionistic painting and that's what this music is."

Since its premier in 1997, Lux Aeterna has been performed throughout the world and is considered Lauridsen's centerpiece of choral compositions. Lauridsen's choral masterpiece twice received Grammy nominations with the orchestral recordings by the Los Angeles Master Chorale and Sinfonia Orchestra, and by the London-based ensemble Polyphony with the Britten Sinfonia.

"Though the lyrics are that of a traditional Requiem Mass, the melodies are contemporary with beautifully complex yet luscious chords that create a deeply moving experience for the audience," explains Bush. "This piece, coupled with the Durufle Requiem will transport listeners to another world."

Arlo first performed in public at 13 and was soon involved in the music that shaped the world of the 1960s. His groundbreaking hit Alice’s Restaurant helped foster the social consciousness and activism of his generation, and remains relevant today.

Movie Screening: Bat It.
In celebration of Earth Day, the City of Livermore Environmental Services Division and Livermore Sanitation invite you to a FREE encore screening of the 2010 award-winning environmental documentary, Bag It. The screening will be held at the Livermore 13 Cinemas, 2490 First Street in downtown Livermore, on Wednesday, April 24 at 7:00pm and is made possible through a grant from the Altamont Education Advisory Board (EAB).

Running approximately 75 minutes, Bag It follows “everyman” Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. Jeb’s journey in this documentary film starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? What he learns quickly grows far beyond plastic bags. More movie information can be found at www.bagitmovie.com.

As of January 1, 2013, grocery stores and certain other food retailers in Alameda County can no longer provide single-use plastic carryout bags at checkout. Plastic bags are one of the most common litter items found in our waterways, and plastic pollution is a growing threat to oceans and marine life. Plastic bags take hundreds of years to break down or decompose, causing a cumulative litter problem. Shopping with a reusable bag, which can replace more than 600 single-use plastic bags over its lifetime, helps reduce litter and waste in our community, protects local creeks and the bay, and conserves natural resources.

Staff from the City of Livermore Environmental Services Division will be on hand afterwards to answer questions. A FREE cotton reusable bag will also be given to attendees.

The Lettermen
When The Lettermen take the stage it’s an instant trip down memory lane to a time when three young men in letter sweaters rode their first hit single The Way You Look Tonight all the way to the top of the charts. Over the years they’ve filled more than 50 albums with such familiar hits as When I Fall in Love and Put Your Head on my Shoulder. Once described as “the best thing that happened to romance since moonlight,” an evening with The Lettermen’s sweet harmonies proves their smooth and romantic sound simply never goes out of style.

Debussy Trio - Del Valle Fine Arts
Harp, flute and viola:  it’s an unusual yet extraordinarily mellifluous combination, as Debussy—the first to compose for this grouping—discovered.  The eponymous Debussy Trio, now in its 23rd year, is the leading exemplar of this form, which has been embraced by other composers.  Comprised of leading performers Marcia Dickstein on harp, Angela Wiegand on flute, and David Walther on viola, the Trio has performed at major venues throughout the United States (Kennedy Center, Hollywood Bowl, Walt Disney Concert Hall) in festivals across Europe, and on NPR.  They also have an extensive discography.  “The Debussy Trio has earned its reputation as a top-most chamber group, not only through the strength of its players, but through its polished yet daring programming.”  [Harp Column]
