The Colburn Youth Orchestra, Maxim Eshkenazy, Conductor
Members of the Colburn Youth Orchestra perform Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E Minor, op. 64 and other selections to be announced.
Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as "charismatic and exciting," conductor Maxim Eshkenazy leads the Colburn Youth Orchestra. The 70-member Colburn Youth Orchestra consists of woodwinds, pairs of horns and trumpets, percussion, and strings. Comprising students age 13 and above, they perform classic symphonic literature as well as newly commissioned works.
Conductor Maxim Eshkenazy was recently promoted to associate conductor of the Pacific Symphony. He also holds posts as music director of the Bakersfield Youth Orchestra and at the Colburn School in Los Angeles, where he leads both the Chamber and Youth Orchestras. Eshkenazy regularly guest conducts Bulgaria’s major orchestras, including the Sofia Philharmonic. Committed to the promotion of new music, Eshkenazy frequently programs and performs the music of contemporary composers.
This concert is sponsored by a generous grant from Robert Gore Rifkind Foundation.
Sundays Live is made possible in part by the Colburn Foundation, Sarah Coode Mandell and Peter Mandell, and the Sidney Stern Memorial Trust.
