CAMA Wraps Up Masterseries By Going Down Under

The Australian Chamber Orchestra will be at the Lobero Theatre on April 22 with countertenor Andreas Scholl

The Community Arts Music Association’s 2008-2009 Masterseries at the Lobero Theatre concludes April 22 with a concert by the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

Founded in 1975 in Sydney, the Australian Chamber Orchestra is an ensemble of virtuoso musicians. In a nod to past traditions, only the cellists are seated — the resulting sense of energy and individuality is one of the most commented-upon elements of an ACO concert experience.

Australian violinist Richard Tognetti has served as artistic director and lead violin since 1990. The ACO’s Santa Barbara debut features countertenor Andreas Scholl singing arias by G.F. Handel. Scholl performs in the world’s leading concert halls and festivals, and in operatic engagements including Glyndebourne Festival Opera and The Metropolitan Opera.

The program April 22 will include Antonio Vivaldi: “Concerto Grosso, Op. 3, No. 11, R565;”
Handel: Arias from “Giulio Cesare,” “Rodelinda,” “Giustino” and “Saul” (featuring Andreas Scholl);
Joseph Haydn: “Symphony No. 44 in E minor,” “Trauer-Sinfonie”; and Jean-Philippe Rameau: “Suite from Dardanus.”

The ACO’s April 22 program also includes Vivaldi’s “Concerto Grosso, Op. 3, No. 11,” Haydn’s “Symphony No. 44,” and the suite from Rameau’s opera Dardanus.

Ticket prices are $45 or $35. Click here for tickets or call the Lobero box office at 805.963.0761. Click herefor more information on the Community Arts Music Association.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
