Music From Marin Summer Festival

Home Grown 2: Music by Marin County Composers

The 6th annual Music from Marin Summer Festival will feature programs displaying the far-ranging creativity of composers with a connection to Marin County.

Two programs of chamber and vocal music and one of the fully staged operas performed at the College of Marin Kentfield campus as well as throughout Marin County.

Composers include Henry Cowell, Karlheinz Stockhausen, David del Tredici, Ron Fine, Tara Flandreau, Jerry Frohmader, Jules Langert, and others.

 

CONTEMPORARY OPERA MARIN
Aurora, a community opera in one act, by Paul Smith
An expansion of his work from six years ago, Aurora takes place in rural Texas and tells the story of a reported UFO crash in April 1897 and discovery of its person “not of this earth.”  The story unfolds as residents react to this out-of-the-ordinary event.  It must be true… it was in the newspaper!

The performance opens with a sampling of solo and choral music by Ernst Bacon, Henry Cowell, Ron Fein, Tara Flandreau, Kevin Schuepbach, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and David delTredici.
