The Santa Cruz Baroque Festival presents
Season Concert I: Exotic Baroque
February 11, 2012 at 7:30pm

Featuring the California Koto Ensemble,
Bach on Bars (marimba ensemble), and
the Santa Cruz Guitar Orchestra

The Baroque Festival launches its 39th concert season Evolution! with
Exotic Baroque (Concert I) featuring an eclectic assortment of ensembles
playing the music of Vivaldi, Bach, and other baroque composers. Virtuoso
Shoko Hikage leads the California Koto Ensemble in Vivaldi's The Four
Seasons, rendering this beloved masterwork with a Japanese aesthetic. The
chromatic marimba originates in Guatemala and was certainly not part of
the soundscape of Bach's Thomaskirche, but percussionist William Winant
and his Bach on Bars marimba ensemble will inspire us to wonder 'what if.
. .?' Rounding off the evening with a group of more familiar sounds and
sights is Mesut Özgen's recently formed Santa Cruz Guitar Orchestra
playing favorites of J.S. Bach.

This concert takes place on February 11, 2012 at 7:30pm at the UCSC Music
Center Recital Hall. Tickets can be purchased through the UCSC Ticket
Office (www.santacruztickets.com, 831-459-2159) and the Civic Center Box
Office. Ticket prices range between $3-23. For more information please

A few words about the 2012 Season: We had a lot of fun exploring
Endangered Musics in 2011 with one conceptual foot in the animal kingdom
at several of our concerts. The coming season takes us from exploring
extinction to looking at Evolution! Despite changes in leadership and
finance baroque music did not go extinct in 1750. . . . What did baroque
musical style evolve into? The Baroque Festival's Artistic Director Linda
Burman-Hall seeks sought to answer this question this Spring of 2012 with
a set of 5 concerts that illuminate the baroque family tree's reach into
new territories. ####
