From page A9 | April 24, 2012 |

The UC Davis Baroque Ensemble and the Davis High School Baroque Ensemble will come together on Sunday, April 29, at 3 p.m. for a joint concert in the Vanderhoef Studio Theatre at the Mondavi Center. Featured will be music by J.S. Bach, Arcangelo Corelli, Antonio Vivaldi and others.

Angelo Moreno, who teaches the Baroque Ensemble course at Davis High School, said “This annual Baroque collaboration between UCD and DHS Baroque Ensembles has become one of the season’s the most musically inspiring and educational experiences — it is something my students and I look forward to each year. Getting to learn and perform closely with Baroque experts like (UC Davis Baroque Ensemble co-directors) Michael Sand and Phebe Craig is an incredibly memorable and musically rewarding experience for our young aspiring Baroque musicians at Davis High.”

Moreno was himself a student under Sand and Craig a few years back. Moreno said “For me personally, it is a joy to see my students working with two of the most influential musicians that I had as teachers with during my years as an under grad and graduate student at UCD. This concert is a symbol of the strong bond between the UCD music department and the Davis High music program, which is a result of many years of support and respect for each others common goals of shaping and inspiring the next generation of musicians.”

Michael Sand, co-director of the UCD Baroque Ensemble, said “At the risk of sounding like a mutual appreciation society, it has been a great and ongoing pleasure for myself and (co-director) Phebe Craig, as well as for our UCD Baroque Ensemble, to have this yearly joint concert with the Davis High School Baroque Ensemble.  The fact that this high school group exists is a tribute to the musical energy and dedication of Angelo Moreno, whom it is an honor to call ‘our student,’ though he is now way past ‘student’ status!  We find working with the high school students marvelously energizing.”

Sand continued “I am particularly looking forward to our performing my transcription of the Bach G Minor Viola da Gamba Sonata into a Concerto Grosso for string orchestra.  I have been working on this project for the last two years, on and off, and I feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity to perform the piece with a group that is up to it.” Sand and Moreno will share duty as the violin soloists in this piece.

The UCD Baroque Ensemble will also perform the Vivaldi Concerto for Two Cellos, with cellists Milena Schaller and Stephen Hudson (who are co-principal cellists with the UCD Symphony Orchestra) as soloists. In addition, the program will include some harpsichord works to be announced.

Davis Senior High Baroque Ensemble, directed by Moreno, will perform Arcangelo Corelli’s Concerto Grosso, Op. 6, No. 1. Featured in the high school ensemble’s performance will be violinists Chiara Celesia-Moore and Giavanna Moreno, as well as cellist Hana McHale.

Tickets are $12 general, $6 students, www.mondaviarts.org or (530) 754-2787.
