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 will be presenting a gem of a season for 2013-2014
with stellar selections and performers throughout. Some of the highlights will be: 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.
to "Winter" from the Four Seasons, our December concert pair will include Handel's majestic Royal Fireworks
Music, Christmas oriented works by Corelli and Haydn, the stirring Farandole from Bizet's L'Arlesienne, Leroy
Anderson's A Christmas Festival and as a bonus, an audience participation carol sing-along.
Note that the Camarillo concert on December 7 will be at 3 pm in the Studio Channel Islands Art Center in Old Town,
and will be a part to the "Artists Marketplace & Open Studios - Holidays on the Boulevard" event.
