SoundOn Festival of Modern Music: Voyages

Now in its 11th year, the soundON Festival of Modern Music brings together an international roster of composers and performers in a four-day exploration of contemporary chamber music with a series of concerts, performances, workshops, lectures, and art. “The format allows us to present unconventional works in an informal and enjoyable setting,” say the promoters. “We also reach out to young artists and audiences through an interactive workshop to build a new generation of new music supporters and artists.” The January 4 concert, “Exotic images from an inner journey,” features works by composers Toshio Hosokawa, Anne LeBaron, Juan Pablo Contreras, Roger Reynolds, and Adam Greene. One-day pass: $20 members, $25 nonmembers, $10 students. Festival pass available.

A Culture Shock Nutcracker

Culture Shock San Diego presents a modern rendition of the family classic, a mash-up of dance genres, theatrical styles, and holiday traditions. Tchaikovsky’s original score is fused with contemporary music and pop-culture references. “For our fifth season, we’ve moved from a hip-hop show to a broader focus. We will continue to use hip-hip and street styles to tell much of the dance portion of the story, but our motivation is pop culture and we’ve added more dance forms.” The show begins with an homage to the musical-theater hit Beauty and the Beast with tap, contemporary dance, and popping while referencing everything from Star Wars to Bowie’s Labyrinth.

Hamilton comes to San Diego

Hamilton, The Musical

Hamilton, The Musical

The costumes are late 18th and early 19th Century, with knee breeches, velvet coats, and the occasional scented kerchief. The stage looks candlelit. And the characters are America’s founding fathers (Washington, Jefferson, John Adams). But instead of Mt. Rushmore statues creaking into stony life, the multi-racial cast sings and raps the story of Alexander Hamilton’s rise (from illegitimate child to first secretary of the treasury and commander of the new U.S. Army) to his fall in the famous duel with Aaron Burr.
