Jacaranda Announces 10th Anniversary Season
Jacaranda, the classical music series known for rarely heard, new and modern music, will celebrate its first 10 years with a “Season of Journeys” at First Presbyterian Church of Santa Monica. Two of the season’s eight Saturday concerts will be separated by a dinner break, and one will feature the Lyris Quartet in a free offering hosted by the UCLA Music Library at Schoenberg Hall. For its pre-season launch, Jacaranda will present a carousel ride, “The Rest is Noise” during Santa Monica’s Glow art event. Created by Jacaranda artistic director Patrick Scott, this musical experience, highly emblematic of Jacaranda’s signature style and reach, will surround riders on the city’s carousel with a sequence of excerpted, influential 20th-century premieres, from the most thrilling 12 seconds of Gustav Mahler's Fourth Symphony (1901), to an exclamation point from Sofia Gubaidulina (2000).
