First Impressions

Sunday October 13, 2019 | 7 PM

Santa Clara University Recital Hall | 952 Franklin St, Santa Clara

Conductor Barbara Day Turner and Daniel Hughes

Capturing the imagination, FIRST IMPRESSIONS is a great way to experience the SJCO concert experience for the first time. From the 18th century musical interpretation of a 17th century story (Don Quixote), to a cinematically-inclined Memoir for violin and orchestra being performed for the first time, to a whirlwind tour of the sections of the string orchestra culminating in joyful bits of Brazilian dance, waltz and perpetual motion, you are bound to be delighted by these FIRST IMPRESSIONS!

Don Quixote Suite — Telemann
Memoir of an Ordinary Man — Durwynne Hsieh (premiere)
Impressions — Clarice Assad
