World premiere of Cosmic Dust, an orchestral work consortium-commissioned by the New West Symphony, Bay-Atlantic Symphony, and Hopkins Symphony. First performances are April 25, 8pm at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center, April 26 8pm at the Thousand Oaks Performing Arts Center, and April 27 4pm at Barnum Hall in Santa Monica, CA. This twelve minute work will be conducted by Marcelo Lehninger leading the New West Symphony with a special side-by-side with select members of the Conejo Valley Youth Orchestra, and accompanied by projected images from the Hubble Space Telescope.
Dust is not just the material of the earth; it is the material from the stars. We ourselves are made of stardust. When we gaze at the cosmos, we search for ourselves, our own origins, our own aspirations. Cosmic Dust invokes both the wonder and awe we feel as children gazing at the heavens, and the wonder and awe as adults we feel looking out there at "ourselves."
