We are pleased to invite you to join us for our 2022.23 season, one of the most exciting in our 64-year history. We will welcome two new Artistic Partners, celebrate the talent of our own SPCO musicians, and inaugurate Sandbox Composer Residencies, an exciting new model for new music.
German violist Tabea Zimmermann, one of the world’s greatest musicians on any instrument, and South African cellist, singer and composer Abel Selaocoe, an artist redefining the classical concert experience, join the SPCO next season as our newest Artistic Partners. They join an illustrious group of Artistic Partners that also includes Richard Egarr, Jonathan Cohen and Rob Kapilow, who will lead illuminating concerts featuring Classical symphonies that are at the heart of the SPCO’s repertoire. We are also thrilled to bring former Artistic Partner Joshua Bell back to the SPCO next season following the success of our collaboration at the Bravo! Vail Music Festival last summer.
The talents of the SPCO musicians as soloists, chamber musicians and leaders have been the life blood of the SPCO’s artistic output in these recent seasons, and that continues next season with a special emphasis on the curatorial interests of our players. In addition to a multitude of solo stints for audience favorites including Steven Copes, Julie Albers, Sang Yoon Kim and Cassie Pilgrim, among others, you will see a number of our members listed as creative leads for programs featuring many lesser-known gems in the repertoire and a multitude of women composers. Not only are our players invested with the ability to craft artistic interpretations in SPCO musician-led weeks, but they have been empowered to bring forth programming ideas that reveal their curiosity and their passion.
SPCO audiences will also have a chance to engage with composers-in-residence in a whole new way through our groundbreaking new music initiative called Sandbox. Three inaugural Sandbox composers — Viet Cuong, Clarice Assad and Gabriela Lena Frank — will compose new sketches and works for SPCO musicians on a regular basis, with opportunities for audiences to hear workshops of pieces in progress and get a window into the creative process.
While we don’t know what the COVID environment will be next year, we will continue to prioritize the health and safety of our audience, musicians and staff. We are currently planning to return to concerts at full capacity this fall, barring any significant negative changes to COVID conditions, and will monitor the environment and inform patrons of any changes to our policies.
We are so grateful for the unwavering support of our audiences in these turbulent times, and we cannot wait to share this celebratory season with you all.
