With a diverse repertoire that pays homage to the past while embracing the present, our CSO audience is in for an unforgettable experience.

Program Repertoire:

Coleman, Umoja, Anthem of Unity

Ravel, Tombeau de Couperin

Leigh, The Impossible Dream

Still, Afro American Symphony, No. 1

Opening with a powerful and evocative performance of Valerie Coleman’s “Umoja, Anthem of Unity”, this CSO performance will weave together intricate melodies and rhythms inspired by African and African-American musical traditions, creating a celebration of unity and cultural richness.

Next, prepare to be transported to a bygone era with its Baroque influences and graceful melodies by Maurice Ravel’s “Tombeau de Couperin.”

Charles Ives’ “Variations on America” injects an element of playfulness into the concert, where symphony musicians tackle this innovative and daring exploration of the American national anthem. With its surprising twists and turns, Ives challenges the conventional boundaries of orchestral music.

Lastly, delve into William Grant Still’s groundbreaking “Afro American Symphony, No. 1.” This pioneering work, the first symphony by an African-American composer to be performed by a major orchestra, exudes a profound sense of pride and identity. Its blend of African-American folk themes with European classical forms showcases the rich cultural tapestry of America.

Experience awe and inspiration at the Palladium for the Center for the Performing Arts. This Carmel Symphony Orchestra’s Masterworks Concert stands as a testament to the enduring power of music to connect contemporary voices and perspectives.
