Davis: Recovered Voices ‘James Conlon, Artistic Director and Conductor’
April 10 - April 11
The Ziering-Conlon Initiative for Recovered Voices is a unique Colburn School of Music program that encourages greater awareness and more frequent performances of music by composers whose careers and lives were disrupted—or worse—during the years of the Nazi regime in Europe. For more than 25 years, James Conlon has championed works and drawn deserved attention to composers whose names and works had very nearly been eliminated from history. This two-day event will feature performances by a Chamber Orchestra (4/10) and Chamber Music Ensemble (4/11) made up of Colburn students and led by Maestro Conlon, as well as a symposium featuring Conlon and faculty from the UC Davis Jewish Studies Program. These events are provided free to the public with support from donors to the Mondavi Center’s Artistic Ventures Program.
