First Season Concert - Romantic Revelries

Sept 24, 2022 (7:30 pm) @ Grace Baptist Church

The Santa Maria Philharmonic Orchestra begins its 2022-23 season with a festival of fiery passions and transformative figures that together typify the Romantic era. Ludwig van Beethoven’s Egmont Overture expresses the triumphant struggle and sacrifice against imperial oppression, putting to music sentiments that would shape a century. The Enigma Variations, by late-Romantic British composer Edward Elgar, explore the most intimate and individual interactions of friendship and love. Violin soloist Roger Wilkie will join Maestro Michael Nowak and orchestra for Felix Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor, a cornerstone of both violin literature and 19th Century art music.

Program:

Elgar Enigma Variations

Beethoven Egmont Overture

Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor

Roger Wilkie, violin


Second Season Concert - Baroque Jubilee

Dec 2, 2022 (7:30 pm) The First United Methodist Church

Join the Santa Maria Philharmonic Orchestra chamber players and Maestro Nowak for a joyous celebration of beloved Baroque composers, a holiday season tradition in the Santa Maria Valley. The jaunty rhythms and ringing chords of Johann Sebastian Bach and George Friderich Handel represent the Germanic Baroque tradition in the program, while the singing violin melodies and sparkling sounds of Antonio Vivaldi and Archangelo Corelli exemplify the Italian style. The Santa Maria Philharmonic Orchestra’s own will perform the various soloist parts throughout the evening, showcasing the artistry and skill at home in the ensemble.

Program:

All baroque (Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, Corelli)


Third Season Concert - Breaking Boundaries

Feb 25, 2023 (7:30 pm) @ Grace Baptist Church

The Santa Maria Philharmonic Orchestra and Maestro Michael Nowak will lead the audience through three groundbreaking works from innovators of the 19th and 20th centuries. From the first chord of his Symphony No. 1, Ludwig van Beethoven defied the norms of his neoclassical paradigm, helping to forge a new way in musical expression. American composer Charles Ives plumbs the most profound questions of existence in The Unanswered Question, taking listeners on a cerebral journey depicting humankind’s ascent from nature. Clarinet soloist Don Foster joins the Santa Maria Philharmonic Orchestra and Maestro Nowak for a performance of Aaron Copland’s groundbreaking Clarinet Concerto. Originally penned with Benny Goodman in mind for the solo part, the concerto represents an imaginative fusion of modern art music and the jazz idiom.

Program:

Beethoven Symphony No. 1 (Eroica)

Charles Ives The Unanswered Question

Copland Clarinet Concerto

Don Foster, Clarinet


Fourth Season Concert - Viennese Tradition: Mozart and Brahms

April 29, 2023 (7:30 pm) @ Grace Baptist Church

The Santa Maria Philharmonic Orchestra and Maestro Michael Nowak close the 2022/2023 season with a concert immortalizing two titans of classical music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johannes Brahms. Both Mozart and Brahms resided in Vienna, Austria during the 18th and 19th centuries, respectively, and came to serve as icons of the “Viennese School” of music. Brahms’ Symphony No. 3 is said to depict the Rhine River with a flowing, dynamic melodic structure that gives homage both to predecessors like Beethoven along with Brahms’ contemporary and rival, Richard Wagner. Joining the orchestra and Maestro Nowak for a performance of Mozart’s masterful Piano Concerto K. 488 is Santa Maria’s own Suri Kim, the prodigious 14-year-old pianist and winner of several competitions and accolades.

Program:

Mozart Piano Concerto K. 488 Suri Kim, Piano

Intermission

Brahms Symphony No. 3
