The International Orange Chorale of San Francisco (IOCSF) will present “In a Distant Sky: Choral Music from the Chinese Diaspora” in June.
The concert features the world premiere of “In a Distant Sky” by Huang Ruo, as well as works by Zhou Long, Leong Yoon Pin, Xixian Qu, Toh Ban Sheng, Shui Jiang Tian, Chen Yi, and IOCSF’s inaugural Composer-in-Residence Nicholas Weininger.
The concert will be followed by a reception.
Enjoy two exclusive concerts in the Bay Area only:
- Saturday, June 4 at 7:30 pm at All Souls Episcopal Parish, 2220 Cedar St, Berkeley
- Saturday, June 11 at 7:30 pm at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 1111 O’Farrell St, San Francisco
IOCSF’s spring program is headlined by two minimalist works by noted modernist/minimalist composer Huang Ruo: his 2002 magnum opus “Without Words” and the newly composed “In a Distant Sky” commissioned by IOCSF. Ruo’s sweeping, evocative, polyrhythmic and chromatic lines create waves and textures of sound that transport the audience into an ethereal, mind-expanding sonic world.
