Welcome to the 20th season Birthday Bash of Student Orchestras of Greater Olympia (SOGO). We have a lot in store for you as Maestro Cameron May presents inspirational programming all season long.
The Winter program of SOGO’s 20th season Birthday Bash continues with the Conservatory Orchestra turning to music from 20th-century America. The March concert pairs the familiar with the overlooked. Antonin Dvorak’s ninth symphony, From the New World , depicts an outsider’s account of setting foot in the United States for the first time. Preceding the Dvorak, the orchestra will perform Dances in the Canebrakes, a work composed by African-American female composer Florence Price in 1953.
Also appearing: Brass Choir, Academy & Debut Orchestras.
Join us as we celebrate 20 amazing years of SOGO with lots of birthday cake and inspirational performances by over 130 young musicians.
Lead • Inspire • Perform • Repeat :|| Orchestrating lifelong participation in the Arts!
