Colby Symphony Orchestra: Collaboration

December 2, 2023, 7:30 PM


Directed by Jinwook Park, our second orchestral concert of the season, Collaboration, features solo percussionist Hayoung Song performing Emmanuel Séjourné’s Concerto for Marimba and String Orchestra (2006), as well as an exciting first-time collaboration with Colby’s Performance, Theater, and Dance Department and the Portland Ballet for Claude Debussy’s dreamy tone poem Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun and Maurice Ravel’s inexorable Boléro.

The orchestra will also perform two contemporary works by Colby Assistant Professor of Music José Martínez: Images from Macondo, a sinfonietta based on striking moments in the novel One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez, and On the Other Side, which evokes the physical and psychological experiences of undocumented migrants found in a scorching tractor-trailer in a San Antonio parking lot in 2017.

Admission is free, but reservations are recommended.
