ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The program opens with Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez, featuring SFCM alumnus Alec Holcomb '19, winner of the SFCM 2019 Guitar Concerto Competition, first place in the BorGuitar Festival in Italy (2016), and winner of the 2017 Guitar Foundation of America International Competition. Ms. González-Granados then leads the orchestra in two works inspired by nature: Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture, named for the archipelago off the coast of Scotland; and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, Pastoral, which the composer described as “more an expression of feeling than painting” and which was inspired by his walks in the countryside. Columbian conductor Lina González-Granados will give introductory remarks in both English and Spanish.
