The Santa Rosa Symphony Performs Music by Ellen Taaffe Zwilich at Five "SRS@Home" Concerts

Feb. 01, 2021

The Santa Rosa Symphony, under the direction of Francesco Lecce-Chong, has embarked on an imaginative project, making their concerts - including interviews with and performances by a number of contemporary composers - available to a wide public on YouTube.

 

One composer whose works feature prominently in this innovative initiative is Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, Santa Rosa Symphony's Artistic Partner, who will see no fewer than five of her works being presented in this way this year. In January, the Santa Rosa Symphony performed her Concerto Grosso 1985, written in tribute to the tricentennial of Handel’s birth. On February 28, audiences around the world can visit the Santa Rosa Symphony's YouTube channel to watch the orchestra perform Zwilich's Prologue and Variations for String Orchestra alongside music by William Grant Still, Richard Wagner, and Antonin Dvořák. Subscribers will receive a special access link on March 3 to watch the concert on demand for up to 30 days.
