"It's A Wonderful Life" Jake Heggie & Gene Scheer: Eklund Opera

It may be Christmas, but for George Bailey it is anything but the most wonderful time of the year. Based on the 1946 movie of the same name, Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer's brand new opera adaptation of "It's a Wonderful Life" follows a young guardian angel named Clara as she attempts—with heart and just a bit of holiday magic—to prove to George what an incredible impact he's had on his small town.

At the forefront was a group of six composers, Les Six, whose works used these popular music influences but ingeniously transformed them. The lecture will focus on the music of this group, and will include live performances of songs by Francis Poulenc, Louis Durey and Arthur Honegger, as well as Darius Milhaud’s 1923 chamber work, La Création du Monde, one of the first concert works with distinct jazz influences.

CU Presents: Symphony Orchestra, September

This program includes the audacious and thrilling "Symphonie Fantastique" by Hector Berlioz. With a program clearly intended to be autobiographical in nature, Berlioz broke new ground with his masterwork. Soprano Sabina Balsamo, winner of the graduate division of the College of Music's Honors Competition in early 2019, will perform "Four Last Songs" by Richard Strauss. The program will open with Berlioz's tuneful and exciting "Roman Carnival Overture."
