The Santa Barbara Chamber Players (SBCP) will present its third concert, 7:30 p.m. Oct. 21 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Santa Barbara.
The concert, which marks the opening of the ensemble’s second season, features a diverse repertoire including:
· Prokofiev – “Overture on Hebrew Themes.” Sergei Prokofiev’s piece is a blend of Jewish folk melodies and classical motifs that explores themes of cultural heritage.
· Wagner – “Siegfried Idyll.” Richard Wagner’s tender and intimate composition was written by him as a birthday gift to his wife Cosima.
· Milhaud – “La Creation du Monde.” Darius Milhaud’s joyful and innovative work draws on jazz influences to depict the creation of the world.
· Dvorak – “Serenade, op. 44, for Winds.” Antonin Dvorak’s melodic music showcases the beauty of wind instruments, and captures the essence of the Czech countryside.
Tickets are available on the SBCP website.
“Giving musicians an opportunity to perform benefits them and making attendance affordable benefits our community,” said Simon Knight, SBCP co-founder.
“Our goal, as we grow and hold more concerts, is to add an even richer program of vibrant classical music that everyone can enjoy,” he said.
