The World is our Oyster 

Travel around the world with us! We will explore sounds from Argentina, England, France, and Russia all in one evening,with a short stop back home in the States. This years festival celebrates female composers and composers of color. Rebecca Clark is first in line with her trio "Dumka" that brings Slavic melancholic flavors, and African-American composer George Walker brings us soothing sounds that reminds of Samuel Barbers Adagio for strings. Woodwinds end the evening with bravura in music by Glinka and Saiint-Saens!

THURSDAY, JUNE 8TH, 7P.M

Top BRASS

Our brightly shining brass faculty will serve up a polished mix of music that will be sure to impress. Francis Poulenc stays true to his style of rapid changes from lyrical to quite silly in his sonata for three brass instruments, and Ewazen brings unabashed American romanticism in a piece that quickly becomes everyone's favorite. Samuel Coleridge Taylor, a romantic-era Afro-European composer, creates a fantastic soundscape with woodwinds and strings in his Nonet from 1894.

   RAFF-RIFFS AND OTHER TUNES

German composers abound in this evening's lineup. Blacher's Divertimento for trumpet, trombone and piano is a 7 mini-movement work full of surpirses. True to PRIZM's style of learning by-doing, students and faculty play side-by-side in movements from Mendelssohn's octet and Raff's Sinfonietta. Student groups also perform in one of their festival groups, showing off what they have learned during the week. It promises to be an unforgettable evening.

SWEDISH BEAUTIES AND CZECH BEASTS

The grand finale begins with our talented festival participants showcasing their new skills, followed by Lans-Erik Larsson's exciting Concertino featuring Metropolitian Opera Orchestra acting principal trombonist Weston Sprott. Swedish Native Larsson wrote a Concertino for all the orchestral instruments, but the one for the trombone became the most poplar- for obvious reasons! PRIZM Festival Orchestra gives you a taste of Dvorak's grandiose New World Symphony, and shows us all how beautiful the world can be when we come together in peace and harmony.

                   BLACK DIAMONDS AND REDRUBISPHERES

Tonight is the debut of PRIZM's partnership with First Baptist Church-Broad, and we are performing for the first time in FBC's spacious sanctuary. We'll continue our focus on woman composers and composers of color, featuring rhythmic and virtous music by Valerie Coleman, flutist of the Imani Winds, and William Grant Still, an important and early African American composer. Ewazen's pastorale paints a picture of sunrise over morning-dewy fields, and Poulenc's trio lets the oboe and bassoon merge in languid melodies and sparkly flurries.
