EDWIN OUTWATER LEADS THE BAY BRASS IN 'MOVING PIECES' CONCERT AT THE SAN FRANCISCO CONSERVATORY ON
FEBRUARY 24, 2014

Performance features 3 world premieres and a West Coast premiere of music by Mason Bates

       On Monday, February 24 at 8 p.m., The Bay Brass performs a program titled Moving Pieces at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music's Caroline H. Hume Concert Hall. Led by guest conductor Edwin Outwater, the program includes works by Gabrieli, Rossini, Brahms, James Beckel, and DiLorenzo. The concert also features a West Coast premiere of Chicago, 2012 from Mason Bates' Alternative Energy, the world premiere of Fun in the Sun by Bay Brass and San Francisco Symphony horn player Jonathan Ring, the world premiere of Mystery Train by Rob Mounsey, and a world premiere by Conservatory student Nick Benavides, performed alongside students in the Conservatory's brass department.

This performance is offered in partnership between The Bay Brass and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Many members of The Bay Brass are dedicated educators who maintain studios at the Conservatory, including Dave Burkhart and Adam Luftman, trumpet; Jonathan Ring, Bruce Roberts, and Robert Ward, horn; Paul Welcomer and John Engelkes, trombone; and Peter Wahrhaftig, tuba.

Edwin Outwater is Music Director of Ontario's Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony and regularly guest conducts the Chicago and New World Symphonies. As resident conductor of the San Francisco Symphony from 2001-2006, he worked closely with Michael Tilson Thomas and many members of The Bay Brass; he was also music director of the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra. In October 2013, Outwater returned to lead the orchestra in a week of acclaimed performances of music by Ligeti, Prokofiev, Dvoák, and Lutoslawski.

Composer and SFCM faculty member Mason Bates is a composer-in-residence for the Chicago Symphony. Known for his imaginative narrative forms and innovative use of electronics with orchestra, Bates is an advocate of bringing classical music into contemporary spaces. His works were recently heard at Davies Symphony Hall in a 2-week festival of his and Beethoven's music, and on this concert the Bay Brass will perform the West Coast premiere of a brass arrangement of a movement from his large orchestra work Alternative Energy, commissioned by Riccardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony.
