Programmed by Berkeley Symphony with Anna Clyne
Works by composers from three continents come together to soak in the full moon’s glow. Berkeley Symphony musicians and friends perform six small-ensemble pieces written by living composers from three cities: two from San Francisco, two from Hamburg, and two from Shanghai.
The Residency of Anna Clyne with Berkeley Symphony is made possible through Music Alive, a residency program of the League of American Orchestras and New Music USA. This national program is designed to provide orchestras with resources and tools to support their work with composers and new music, capitalizing on the power of composers and their creativity to build new paths for orchestras to heighten their relevancy and deepen their relationships with their communities. Major funding for Music Alive comes from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with additional support from The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, The Amphion Foundation, The ASCAP Foundation Bart Howard Fund, the Francis Goelet Charitable Lead Trusts, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
