Featuring vocalist Shara Worden, soprano Julie Adams and mezzo-soprano Renée Rapier.
Don’t miss a summer classic when San Francisco Symphony returns with Director of Summer Concerts Edwin Outwater and featured vocalist Shara Worden, the haunting voice behind indie-rock band My Brightest Diamond. The afternoon’s program explores the connection between orchestral music and the beauty of nature.
Ms. Worden will be performing songs from My Brightest Diamond for orchestra, as well as selections from the new release, Unremembered, by composer Sarah Kirkland Snider. An hour-long, thirteen-part song cycle for seven voices, chamber orchestra, and electronics, Unremembered is inspired by poems and illustrations by writer and visual artist Nathaniel Bellows.
The program also includes Korngold’s The Adventures of Robin Hood Suite, Act II of Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel featuring soprano Julie Adams and mezzo-soprano Renée Rapier, and Dvorak’s Symphony No. 8 in G major, Op. 88.
