Art of Elan: Impressions
Art of Elan's Season 13, Hear & Now, includes a three-year musical BaCH Initiative, increased community engagement, new strategic partnerships, and a continued commitment to commissioning new work. Hear & Now focuses on contemporary culture and the importance of cultural context in uniting an increasingly diverse, complex, and changing world through music. The timeless music of J. S. Bach weaves in and out of a season that highlights music from a wide variety of composers and time periods, including several local premieres. The San Diego Museum of Art concert series includes two free pop-up performances in addition to three gallery concerts that showcase the music of Missy Mazzoli, Darius Milhaud, Claude Debussy, and J. S. Bach, among others. The BaCH Initiative kicks off in the rotunda of The San Diego Museum of Art on November 19, 2019, and will include performances and collaborations with La Jolla Music Society, Mira Mesa High School, and the Centro de Artes Musicales in Tijuana.
For Impressions, Gerald Finzi's "Interlude for string quartet and oboe" and the Phantasy Quintet by Ralph Vaughan Williams help create the lush sound world of this closing concert that pays homage to the Impressionist movement of the art world. Works by Debussy, J. S. Bach, and Jean Francaix round out the program.
