July 29-30 & August 20, 2016
Crater Lake, Oregon (July 29-30)
Britt Pavilion, Jacksonville, Oregon (August 20)
On July 29 and 30, Britt will celebrate the unique majesty of Crater Lake when members of the Britt Orchestra and Music Director Teddy Abrams perform at the national park. Abrams will lead approximately 40 Britt Orchestra musicians in the performances, with the dramatic panorama of the lake as the setting. The musicians will perform a world premiere composition by New York-based composer Michael Gordon, commissioned by Britt and inspired by Crater Lake. Gordon has visited Crater Lake throughout the past year, to draw on the park for inspiration for his composition.
Joining the Britt Orchestra will be 10 percussionists I am coordinating from the SOU Percussion Ensemble.
We will also perform the work at the Britt Festival Pavilion on August 20. Left Edge Percussion will open the show at 6:45!
