Cape Ann Symphony Holiday Pops Concert and raising money for typhoon victims – Tonight Nov 30 & Dec 1

 The Cape Ann Symphony is partnering with the Red Cross to raise funds to benefit those affected by the recent typhoon in the Philippines.

At its concerts Saturday and Sunday — which premiere “Yankee Swap!: White Elephant Gift Exchange,” by Gloucester composer Robert Bradshaw — there will be a real Yankee swap for the charity.

“When the idea of the Yankee swap came up, I thought, what better way to do this than to collaborate with an organization that could really use some help right now,” said David Stotzer, president of the symphony’s board. “I looked at all the devastation from the typhoon in the Philippines and thought of the Red Cross and the incredible relief efforts they provide worldwide. Their work is awe-inspiring and the Cape Ann Symphony is proud to offer our support.”

“The American Red Cross of Northeast Massachusetts is grateful to be the recipient of Cape Ann Symphony’s generosity,” said Frederica Doeringer, executive director of the chapter. “The Yankee Swap is a wonderful way to launch the symphony’s world premiere of “Yankee Swap” for orchestra by Robert J. Bradshaw and at the same time, reach across the world to help those devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.”

Performance: Saturday, November 30, 2013      8:00 P.M.

Cape Ann Symphony Holiday Pops Concert – Nov 30 & Dec 1

WORLD PREMIERE FEATURED IN
2013 CAPE ANN SYMPHONY
HOLIDAY POPS CONCERT

Performance: Saturday, November 30, 2013      8:00 P.M.
Performance: Sunday, December 1, 2013             2:00 P.M. 

The Cape Ann Symphony’s Holiday Pops Concert is an exciting celebration of holiday music favorites featuring a World Premiere by Robert J. Bradshaw commissioned by the Cape Ann Symphony, The Cape Ann Symphony Singers under the direction of Rockport’s Wendy Betts and an updated sing along  to kick off the holiday season on Saturday, November 30 at 8 pm & Sunday, December 1 at 2 pm. The Holiday Pops Concert features the world premiere of   “Yankee Swap!: White Elephant Gift Exchange” from Suite No. 4 “Cape Ann” for orchestra by Robert J. Bradshaw, a Gloucester based composer and CAS member. “Yankee Swap!” is a super fun musical take the New England holiday tradition. Pick your number, wait your turn, unwrap or steal someone else’s present and then get ready for some serious symphonic bargaining! According to composer Bradshaw, “I am very grateful to Maestro Yoichi Udagawa and the Cape Ann Symphony for commissioning this work.  It provides me with the opportunity to write for an orchestra and community I care deeply about and the commission itself offered me the chance to explore aspects of my musical experience not often heard on the concert stage (including popular musical influences such as dub step, funk, rock and jazz).”  Maestro Undagawa is eager to premiere the new work,” Rob Bradshaw has written a terrific piece that captures the holidays here in New England. It shifts quickly from one idea and feeling to another, but at the same time paints a complete picture of the joy and complexity of feeling that accompanies the season. I know the audience is going to love this piece!”

Conductor Udagawa is eager to work with Mr. Young again, “Owen Young is an incredible cellist and he never fails to impress and move audiences. The way he plays the Dvorak Concerto is not to be missed. A versatile musician, he plays all kinds of music perfectly and in addition to his work in the Boston Symphony, he plays in James Taylor’s band. He is a favorite with the Cape Ann Symphony audiences and we are really looking forward to working with him.”

Owen Young joined the Boston Symphony Orchestra in August 1991. As a concert soloist, he has appeared with numerous orchestras, including the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Boston Pops Orchestra, Salisbury Symphony Orchestra, Racine Symphony Orchestra, and San Antonio Chamber Orchestra. He also frequently performs chamber music and recitals in the United States and abroad. Mr. Young often performs with singer/songwriter James Taylor, including the nationally televised recorded concert James Taylor Live at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. A founding member of the innovative chamber ensemble Innuendo, Mr. Young is a frequent collaborator in chamber music concerts and festivals and has appeared at Tanglewood, the Banff Centre for the Arts, Brevard Music Center, and the Aspen, Davos, Sunflower, Gateway, and St. Barth’s Music Festivals. His performances have been broadcast on National Public Radio, WQED in Pittsburgh, WITF in Harrisburg, and WGBH in Boston.

Founded in Gloucester in 1951, the Cape Ann Symphony is a professional orchestra of over 70 players from throughout the New England area. They perform a subscription season of four concerts per year plus several Pops and youth concerts.

His programs often include premieres of new works – some specially commissioned for the orchestra — as well as great orchestral works across the symphonic repertoire and lively Pops programs. He is also an integral part of the Cape Ann Symphony Youth Outreach programs to area schools.

Yoichi Udagawa, the son of a nuclear physicist father and singer/artist mother, was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1964. His family immigrated to the United States soon thereafter. He began playing the violin at age four and made his conducting debut at age fifteen. After receiving a music degree from the University of Texas at Austin, he continued advanced studies in conducting with Gunther Schuller, Seiji Ozawa, Morihiro Okabe, and Henry Charles Smith. A fan of many different styles of music, Mr. Udagawa also enjoys performing gospel music in addition to his conducting activities.

Heroic Music for Mother’s Day ~ Beethoven “Eroica” & Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings

Check out this spectacular Cape Ann Symphony program for this Saturday 5/11 at Manchester High sent from Heidi Dallin of Cape Ann Symphony.   Don’t forget Kids under 19 are FREE!
CASMay13WHAT CAN BE MORE THRILLING THAN HEROIC MUSIC?

Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky

Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky

Beethoven’s Symphony № 3 (“Eroica” or “heroic” in Italian) was the first of his three great so-called heroic symphonies. Beethoven initially dedicated it to Napoleon but then rescinded the dedication when Napoleon crowned himself Emperor.

Tchaikosvsky’s orchestral Serenade is infinitely romantic: he conceived it as an homage to Mozart, whom he idolized, and declared it to be written “from the heart”. It was an instant success at its premiere in 1880 and has been an important part of the symphonic repertoire ever since.

CAPE ANN SYMPHONY MARCH KOTO MAGIC CONCERT RAISES FUNDS FOR JAPAN RELIEF

From Heidi Dallin-

Over 500 people attended the Cape Ann Symphony’s Koto Magic Concert on Sunday, March 27 at the Fuller Auditorium. Over $2200 in funds were raised for Japan relief and over 400 handmade paper cranes were given to audience members that donated to the International Red Cross for earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan. Cape Ann Symphony donated a percentage of ticket proceeds from the concert and raised additional funds through donations from the audience to aid Japan Relief efforts.

Cape Ann Symphony President Tom Class told the audience that it was "purely coincidental that we would be featuring the Koto at this time, but wonderfully appropriate under the circumstances and we will donate a percentage of the proceeds of our ticket sales to the International Red Cross for Japanese relief." He then invited the audience to donate as well, in return for which each person would receive a small origami crane, created by the Boston Origami Project, whose members handmade the colorful printed cranes in a variety of colors and prints including tie dye, flowers, polka dots and animal prints in the Fuller lobby all afternoon. According to Cape Ann Symphony principal oboist Akane Inoue who organized the collaboration with the Boston Origami Project, “We are so happy for the tremendous outpouring of support from the Cape Ann Symphony audience!”

President Class reported that Conductor Yoichi Udagawa’s family in Japan, together with the families of several other Japanese members of our orchestra including Akane Inoue, was safe. "We are grateful for that," he said. "But we should also be mindful of the great need and thankful that we can do our small part to help." "It is so gratifying to be a part of such a generous organization as the Cape Ann Symphony," declared Maestro Udagawa.

The Koto, an ancient Japanese stringed instrument, whose origins date back 1500 years was featured at the concert. This beautiful, harp-like instrument was played by soloist Yuki Yasuda in two original pieces with the orchestra commissioned by Cape Ann Symphony, East Wind, composed by Takashi Koto and Concertino No. 3 for Koto and Orchestra by Martin Schreiner. Both composers were in attendance and received standing ovations.

The program also included Rossini’s L’Italiana in Algeri and Dvorak’s Symphony No.8, which received a standing ovation at the close of the concert.

If you would like to donate to the Japan Relief effort by the Cape Ann Symphony, you may send your check, made out to the Red Cross and marked for Japan Relief, to Cape Ann Symphony, P.O. Box 1343, Gloucester, MA 01930

The first half of the program will conclude with the ever popular Anderson’s Christmas Festival. Following the intermission, the Cape Ann Symphony Singers will join the orchestra.
