On April 27, The Young People's Symphony Orchestra gave a rousing première of Ascent to The Sierras under the baton of David Ramadanoff.
    The orchestra worked hard on this large-scale and challenging work, which is essentially a one-movement symphony with plenty for everyone to do! The performance took place at Berkeley's First Congregational Church.  Also on the program were Beethoven's Leonore Overture No. 3, and movements from Elgar's Cello Concerto and Grieg's Piano Concerto, featuring YPSO's talented concerto competition winners as soloists.

Rehearsals are underway for Jeremy's new symphonic work, Ascent to the Sierras, to be premiered by Young People's Symphony Orchestra on April 27, 2019 in Berkeley, under the direction of Maestro David Ramadanoff.
    Ascent to the Sierras is Jeremy's first commission as Composer-in-Residence of the YPSO.  It is the final installment in Jeremy's "Alta California" cycle of tone-poems that began with Monterey Suite in 2012.  Its title derives from the iconic poem by the Californian poet Robinson Jeffers.
