Prometheus Symphony Orchestra welcomes you to the third concert of our 57th Season. We are planning to present a wonderful program for you, featuring the awe-inspiring sisters Valery and Starla Breshears, our Young Artists Concerto Competition winners, who will perform the Double Concerto for Violin and Cello, by Johannes Brahms. Following that the orchestra will perform Claude Debussy's masterpiece of composition and tonal soundscape: La Mer.
Since 1965, Prometheus has drawn on the wealth of excellent amateur and semi-professional musicians in the Bay Area. Whether former professional musicians or life-long amateur players, our members share a passion for great symphonic music. It is the members of our all–volunteer ensemble who perform the myriad of duties required to produce a fiveconcert season (we have no paid staff).
Founded in 1965 as a class at Merritt College in Oakland, Prometheus Symphony Orchestra became an independent not-for-profit organization in 1979. Each season it offers five or more concerts to the Oakland and East Bay communities, with no admission charge so great music is available to all. Concerts are customarily on Sunday afternoons to encourage families and elders to attend in a beautiful and accessible venue near Lake Merritt.
Throughout its history, Prometheus has performed challenging works from the classical era to the 21st
century. We feature the greatest symphonic composers from the
Classical, Romantic and Modern periods, while also presenting women and
African-American composers. Our Khuner Young Artist Concerto Competition
discovers gifted young musicians who perform with the orchestra each
season. Many of the concerts are recorded and available on our website: https://www.prometheussymphony.org.
