La Jolla Symphony & Chorus Celebrates Life And David Chase

Aired 12/5/13 on KPBS Midday Edition.


David Chase, choral director, La Jolla Symphony & Chorus


David Chase has been the choral director for the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus since 1973.

For 59 years, the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus has pursued its mission: to inspire San Diego with the joy of music.

It is San Diego’s oldest and largest orchestra and chorus.

This year, the Symphony & Chorus celebrates life and all its complexities. This concert season is dedicated to one life in particular: choral director David Chase, who's celebrating 40 years with the Symphony & Chorus.

The upcoming Dec. 7 and 8 concerts are themed "utterly ecstatic" and feature Aaron Jay Kernis' "Musica Celestis" and Maurice Ravel's "Daphnis et Chloe."

The concerts will also feature the world premiere performance of "Ikarus-Azur," a composition by UC San Diego graduate student Paul Hembree. Hembree is also a recipient of the Thomas Nee Commission.
