North State Symphony: To The Fore!
With The North State Symphony being a program within the College of Humanities and Fine Arts at California State University, Chico the Covid-19 restrictions forced any public performances outdoors with social distancing. SCACtv was happy to assist the 20th Anniversary Season Finale recording at Redding School of the Arts amphitheater renting seven cameras and a remote studio for Scott Seaton, Music Director to produce not only the concert but video.
"To The Fore" is the title and the largest chamber music ensemble of their season with all three pieces conducted by Maestro Scott Seaton. All three use exotic instrument combinations and orchestral colors to tell unique stories. They are...
Ellen Taaffe Zwilich's Chamber Symphony, for Flute, Clarinet, Violin, Viola, Cello & Piano
Jennifer Higdon's Dark Wood, showcasing NSS Principal Bassoon Jarratt Rossini and a string trio
Bohuslav Martinu's jazzy La Revue de Cuisine suite from his ballet of the same name, featuring Clarinet, Bassoon, Trumpet, Violin, Cello & Piano
