Stockton Symphony Concert to Benefit Harmony Stockton
Top alumni of the Sphinx Competition for talented young African-American and Latino musicians, the Sphinx Virtuosi, are touring the nation in celebration of their 15th anniversary and, at the request of the Stockton Symphony, have added Stockton to their tour schedule (just days after their Carnegie Hall performance).
The concert, which will be held on Friday, Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m. at Faye Spanos Concert Hall on Pacific's Stockton campus, will include a performance by The Catalyst Quartet, comprised of top laureates and alumni of the Sphinx Competition. Inspired by music's ability to transform, the Catalyst Quartet seeks to change the way that classical music is perceived through diverse programming for a wide range of audiences.
The program includes masterpieces by W.A. Mozart, J.S. Bach, B. Bartok, and F. Schubert as well as seldom-presented works by composers of color: Juan Bautista Plaza, Michael Nyman, Alberto Ginastera, Coleridge Taylor Perkinson, and Osvaldo Golijov. The concert will benefit the Symphony' and University of the Pacific's free after-school music education program, Harmony Stockton. General Admission tickets are $25 and student tickets are $10.
