Oct 11 – Sierra Prelude Project

Sunday, October 11, 2020 • 2pm

A virtual premiere of  Lynn Schugren’s “Sierra Prelude Project”















The project consists of 12 piano preludes commissioned by and performed by Lynn Schugren.

Ten California composers have each written a prelude influenced by the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Each piece is accompanied by a visual image and descriptive or inspirational text chosen by the composer.

This project is meant to showcase new music but, also, to bring awareness to the impact humans have on the mountains. Included will be images and text from Sierra Streams and South Yuba River Citizen’s League (SYRCL). Conservation of the Sierra is part of the purpose of the project.

Composers in the project include Alexis Alrich, Eleanor Armer, Molly Axtmann, Jake Collins, Jerry Grant, Robert Greenberg, Durwynne Hsieh, Dennis Lauderdale, Bruce Nalezny, and Mark Vance.

The concert will be streamed on InConcert Sierra’s YouTube channel, Facebook and website pages.
