Coastside Community Orchestra Winter Concert


By on Sat, January 29, 2011

Sat.  February 5, 2011 at 7 p.m, Robert Wayne Smith conducts a program featuring three works: 

  • Aaron Copland - An Outdoor Overture 

An example of Copland's finest and most personal music. Best known for its lofty and beautiful overture, this piece features long trumpet solos, lyrical flute passages, and exuberant backup by the brass and percussion sections.

  • Beethoven - Triple Concerto, Op. 56 

A warm-hearted musical romp with a slower elegy in the middle.  Features the Trio Cabrillo (pictured from left to right):  


Robert Shultz, piano:  made his piano debut with the S.F. Symphony under Arthur Fiedler.  He has also performed with the Oakland, Fresno, and Peninsula symphonies; as well as numerous recitals throughout the Bay Area. 

Charles Calvert, cello: is the principal cellist with both the Coastside Orchestra and the Master Sinfonia Chamber Orchestra.  While living in London, Charles appeared in many solo and orchestral works at Wigmore Hall, Leighton House and St. Martin in the Fields.  

Bruce Yu, violin: began playing the violin at the age of five.  While studying engineering at Stanford, he played for the Stanford Symphony Orchestra winning the Student Soloist Award.  Bruce is an active chamber musician and a regular participant in the St. Lawrence String Quartet Seminar.

  • Brahms - Symphony #2 in D Major,  Op. 73

This symphony  features a subtle interplay of overlapping melodies that are passed back and forth among instruments in the orchestra.
