The SFCM Orchestra performs its final concert of the season with one of the most exciting and versatile young conductors on the podium today, Vinay Parameswaran. Originally from the Bay Area, Parameswaran recently served as the Associate Conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra and the Nashville Symphony, and has made debuts as conductor with the Pittsburgh, Detroit and Chicago Symphonies, among many others. Parameswaran conducts the overture to Rossini’s Semiramide opera, the last the composer wrote in Italy, as well as Beethoven’s “Heroic” symphony that revolutionized the form during a transformative period for the composer. The concert also features SFCM faculty Jeff Anderle in a performance of a bass clarinet concerto that was written for and premiered by Anderle.

About the SFCM Orchestra

As a member of the SFCM Orchestra, you’ll experience firsthand the advantages of playing in a large ensemble. You’ll also get a complete overview of orchestral repertoire, and that begins with examining both masterworks and lesser-known pieces of every era. The symphony orchestra has a large repertoire, and each stylistic period deserves attention. Do you take to the classical period works of Mozart and Haydn? The grand romantic works of Brahms and Tchaikovsky? How about the 20th-century masterpieces by Aaron Copland and Benjamin Britten? Add to that more recent works by such luminaries as John Adams and Joan Tower, and collaborations with Opera Theatre, and you’re on your way to becoming the well-rounded, informed musician the performing world expects.

The SFCM Orchestra presents several performances a year that prominently feature student soloists. Participation also includes public orchestral workshops with distinguished guest conductors. Recent guests have included Donald Runnicles, Carl St. Clair, Nicola Luisotti, and Peter Oundjian.
