Join Camarada in a night of music and poetry as we remember Jewish composers throughout history. Prepare to be mesmerized by Andrea Overturf, principal english horn of the San Diego Symphony Orchestra, in her first appearance with Camarada. Ms. Overturf is the first oboist in the history of The Juilliard School to graduate from the prestigious solo-intensive Artist Diploma Program. You will be charmed by her deep, rich sound in works by Alan Hovhaness and Arthur Honneger. Arthur Honneger’s broad meaning behind one of his works (“an individual taking a stand against a oppressive crowd”) gave the Nazi’s motive to campaign against him and label him jewish in 1933. This corroded his image, making him a widely unknown composer to this day. Other composers featured in the program; Gustav Mahler, Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, and Leo Smit; are well known Jewish composers whose works are performed and savored by audiences across the globe. The perseverance of all these composers to make music despite oppression is a true feat. History will come to life in Camarada’s Spirit, Struggle, Triumph.
