La Jolla Symphony & Chorus
Famed Venezuelan choral conductor Maria Guinand joins LJS&C; choral director David Chase in a program of Latin American music. The concert opens with David Chase conducting the swaggering Malambo by Alberto Ginestera followed by the West Coast premiere of Intrada 1631, an expanded processional by composer Stephen Montague based on a 17th-century Peruvian chant and scored for symphonic brass choir with field drums. Maria Guinand conducts the second half of the program in two works for chorus, orchestra and soloists: Osvaldo Golijov’s Oceana and Heitor Villa-Lobos’ Chôros No. 10.
