Finding Space. We try to make space for music in our lives.
We look for our living space, our space in society, our personal space, our work space. Music fills empty spaces, in rehearsal rooms and concert halls. Music fills the spaces in our hearts and minds. Orchestras fill spaces in our cultural lives. Young musicians carve out their new spaces. Culver City Symphony Orchestra’s next concert is finding space in a new year and a new era with works from composers who filled spaces in society with their works which confronted society-Mozart, brilliant works-Mendelssohn, works which created new space-Wagner, or works which returned to old spaces to create something new-Prokofiev.
Mozart: Don Giovanni, Overture (1787)
Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto (1844)
Wagner: Sigfried Idyll (1870)
Prokofiev: Classical Symphony (1917)
