Redwood Symphony: Contemporary Classics|
Three modern classics will be featured in Liberating the Soul, a concert Redwood Symphony will present at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, in the Canada College Main Theatre, 4200 Farm Hill Blvd., Redwood City.
Directed by Dr. Eric Kujawsky, the symphony will perform Jennifer Higdon’s Blue Cathedral, Lou Harrison’s Piano Concerto and John Corigliano’s Symphony No. 1. Pianist Louise Costigan-Kerns will be the soloist in the Harrison concerto.
Kujawsky will give a pre-concert talk at 7 p.m. "The evening will provide a modern and adventurous exploration of the inexpressible human experience, designed to heal and liberate the soul," he says.
