vogel: wassail overture Growing up, there was always a tradition in my household that the holiday season did not begin until after Thanksgiving. Humming holiday music before that first Friday was strictly forbidden. There was always an element of excitement when the first holiday album was put on in the house, and without fail, this was typically a compilation album. As a matter of fact, every holiday album our family owned and listened to during the holiday season was a compilation. This had a major impact on my interpretation of holiday music, most notably that I did not associate a single artist or musical style with any particular song. It is this memory of the holidays that provides the inspiration for the Wassail Overture. Commissioned by Daniel Alfred Wachs and The Chapman Orchestra, the Wassail Overture is an introduction to the holiday season as a whole, beckoning us all to recount our favorite holiday memories through an energetic medley of some of my own cherished holiday classics. The piece opens in a flashy fashion, reminiscent of the television holiday specials of the 1950s and 21


60s. A number of songs are cited quickly, to help gather ourselves into the holiday spirit. We are then propelled into a lively rendition of Joy to the World, with an accompaniment evoking the imagery of a sleigh, racing through a snow-packed forest. Following this number, we are treated to the soulful sounds of a big band saxophone section, and a jazzy version of Jingle Bells. The piece then takes a contemplative tone, and presents an emotional take on one my favorite holiday ballads, Oh Holy Night. Lush strings accompany an English horn solo, with a climactic moment that is truly touching. The next section, inspired by great American composer Aaron Copland, features a dialogue between Flute and Clarinet soloists to a children’s classic, Up on the Rooftop. To close the piece, a minimalist presentation of Silent Night is meant to represent the typical sonority of a modern film or television score, with bold brass figures and a dramatic ending, bookending the piece with familiar music of old, and a contemporary soundscape. Please enjoy the Wassail Overture and allow it to provide the soundtrack to open your holiday season! - Jacob Vogel BerNsteiN: suite for orchestra from “caNdide” Among the best-known American musicians of the 20th century, Leonard Bernstein was a true polymath, bringing passion and great skill to his multiple roles as conductor, pianist, teacher and composer. His far-reaching interests led him to compose music that tapped into American jazz and pop, as well as the inherited legacy of traditional classical music. His canon of works covers a broad spectrum, including film scores, Broadway musicals and a full range of orchestral, chamber and vocal/choral works. Leonard Bernstein always said he wanted to write “The Great American Opera.” He probably came closest with Candide (1956), which he labeled “a comic operetta.” Based on Voltaire’s satirical novel of 1759, it chronicles the misadventures of Candide,


a naive, pure-hearted youth, and his much more tough-minded sweetheart, Cunégonde. Although Candide has been taught by his tutor, Dr. Pangloss, (here Voltaire was taking a jab at the optimistic philosophy of his contemporary Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz) that “all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds,” throughout the story he is assailed by legions of man-made and natural disasters that sorely test this theory. Finally, older, a little wiser, he and the equally battered Cunégonde are reunited, with much more modest aspirations for their life together. For Bernstein, collaborating with the admired playwright Lillian Hellman, this story had contemporary relevance for an artificially happy post-war America, recently bedeviled by the McCarthy witch-hunts. Of the operetta, the overture is a well-known favorite but this Suite for Orchestra enables audiences to discover some of the works lesser-known music in a program-friendly instrumental version lasting eighteen minutes. The selections include You Were Dead You Know, Paris Waltz, Bon Voyage, Drowning Music/The King’s Barcarolle, Ballad of Eldorado, I Am Easily Assimilated, The Best of All Possible Worlds, and the touching finale, Make Our Garden Grow. - Ronda Latham BritteN: the YouNg PersoN’s guide to the orchestra Benjamin Britten’s first encounters with the orchestra took place at an early age. At around age five, he started showing unusual talent in music and began composing. Some of the sketches for his works that he wrote between the ages of 10 and 12 were later immortalized into his string orchestra work called “Simple Symphony.” By the time he was in his early 30s, Britten’s success as a composer was widespread. Some of his most widely-respected and loved works had already been composed, including the Ceremony of Carols, the Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings and the opera Peter Grimes. While finishing Peter Grimes, he was asked by the British Broadcasting Corporation


to compose the music for a film called “The Instruments of the Orchestra.” Britten finished the score on New Year’s Eve 1945. As the basis for The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, Britten chose a 1695 melody by the English Renaissance composer Henry Purcell. The work is subjected to a set of variations while in turn featuring each section of the orchestra. To begin, the whole orchestra performs the melody, then it is heard by each family of instruments (woodwinds, brass, strings and percussion). After that, there are thirteen variations in this order: WOODWINDS Flutes and Piccolo Oboes Clarinets Bassoons STRINGS Violins Violas Cellos Double Basses Harp BRASS French Horns Trumpets Trombones and Tuba PERCUSSION Prior to each variation, the narrator gives a short description of the characteristics of the instrument about to take center stage. Britten does character sketches of each instrument, bringing out one or more qualities of their nature. For example, the oboes play mournfully, the clarinets are athletic, the cellos show their lyrical side, the trumpets have a military feel, the trombones and tubas are majestic, etc. For the huge percussion section, Britten chooses eleven instruments that are featured in quick succession. To close the work, Britten composes a fugue. The instruments enter in the same order of their variation, each one adding more and more to


the texture. Finally, Purcell’s original melody comes in on top of Britten’s fugue. This not only shows Britten’s great skill as a composer but helps bring the work to a glorious and triumphant ending. While in the sound booth for the first recording of the work, the engineer reported that Britten was “jumping about and laughing with pleasure at hearing what he had done.” The pleasure that the composer received from his own composition has been experienced by young people of all ages ever since. - Christopher Russell alex david, Narrator Alex David most recently can be seen as Sebastian in the romantic comedy Temps as well as the ABC pilot Dr. Ken with Ken Jeong. He has performed at The Kremlin stage in Moscow for the ‘We are One Live!’ televised world broadcast and began his film career at an early age, working with such celebrities as Ben Stiller and Cameron Diaz in There's Something About Mary, Dan Lauria and Olympia Dukakis in Jesus, Mary and Joey, and Amy Smart in Outside Providence. 23



Since then, he had the opportunity to concentrate on the Broadway stage, performing in the original production of The Nutty Professor directed by the legendary Jerry Lewis and composed by the late Marvin Hamlisch. He was honored to be a part of the Lincoln Center’s tribute concert, in memory of Hamlisch, with featured legends Barbara Streisand, Aretha Franklin and Liza Minnelli. Alex received his B.F.A. in Theater Performance at Chapman University and most recently had the incredible honor of being the Master of Ceremonies for the grand opening of The Musco Center for the Arts. Alex is excited to be back on stage with these talented young aspiring musicians.

The Orange County Register exclaimed: “Wachs guided the ensemble with energy, precision, anda welcome sense of clarity and poise. The performance wasn’t just good by standards for younger performers, but forceful and exuberant by any standard: genuinely inspiring, technically proficient, structurally sound. The combined choruses were a powerhouse.” During the 2015-16 season, Wachs and OCYSO joined forces with the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra of Los Angeles, presenting the United States premiere of Turnage’s “Passchendaele,” an OCYSO co-commission on the LA Phil’s Sounds About Town series on the stage of the Walt Disney 26
