Featuring composers and poets from L.A. to Vancouver – from the Mexican Baroque to Joni Mitchell – this concert highlights the premiere of a new work for women’s voices by West-Coast composer Craig Russell with percussionist John Astaire on marimba. Fire on the Hills is set to a poem by Robinson Jeffers, a “coastal poet” who wrote many volumes of poetry at his iconic home Tor House in Carmel.

Canzona welcomes you with two lyrical Spanish pieces from the Mexican Baroque, possibly performed at our local Mission San Luis Obispo. We send you out singing with Joni Mitchell’s The Circle Game, one of her most recognizable songs. We round out the afternoon with some of our favorite west coast composers, celebrating The Coastal Awakening, an arts and cultural movement centered in and around San Luis Obispo County.
