KuanFen Liu, Artistic Director
Believe it or not, the Channel Islands Chamber Orchestra
is in its eleventh season. We’ve accomplished a decade of exciting music of high quality presented to local audiences
by local players. And this season, we continue to expand, with a full series performed both in Ventura
and in Camarillo.
CHICO is presenting a gem of a season for 2013-2014
with stellar selections and performers throughout. Some of the highlights are: Howard Hanson's Concerto for
Organ, Harp and Strings, featuring organist Raelynn Clare, a special Holiday Concert with violinist Eric Boulanger
performing "Winter" from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, our Youth Concert featuring the three winners of this
year’s youth soloist competition, our choral spectacular featuring the great Brahms German Requiem and, of
course, our upcoming annual display of pianistic brilliance by Miriam Arichea.
22 and 23, we will be joining forces with CSU Channel Islands Choir and the Chancel Choir of Ventura FUMC for two
performances of Brahms' German Requiem. The concert will begin with Brahms' Tragic Overture.
Note that the Camarillo concert on March 22 will be at 4 pm and
returning to Studio Channel Islands Art Center in Old Town Camarillo.
The Ventura concert on March 23 will be at 4 pm at the First
United Methodist Church.
