In its ongoing series featuring the music of Beethoven in celebration of the 250th anniversary of his birth, the Tifereth Israel Community Orchestra, conducted by David Amos, will play the composer’s Triple Concerto.
In the Triple Concerto, we will feature a mother and two daughters, coming to us from Salt Lake City. Violin virtuoso Jenny Oaks Baker and daughters Hannah and Sarah have performed with TICO before, having delighted our audiences with their vitality and the closeness of family.
The rest of the program will feature an audience favorite, Ferdinand Herold’s colorful Zampa Overture, a French 19th Century staple, and a symphony on Mexican themes, “La Fiesta Mexicana,” composed in Mexico by H. Owen Reed, during his early studies in that country.
Originally written for concert band and later transcribed for orchestra by the composer, the music is in three movements, using original themes, such as the Mariachi song “La Negra,” to a moment of prayer, a march in a Mexican town, and a colorful Aztec Dance. The percussion section is highlighted in the whole work, starting with church bells at the start.
Owen Reed came to TICO at the age of 97, about ten years ago, and enjoyed what we did with his music. During most of his career, he was the head of the composition department at Michigan State University.
Tickets may be purchased online, at the door, or by calling the synagogue office at 619 697-6001.
