From Bernstein to Motown, a sonic portrait of the beating American heart, with violinist Ray Ushikubo, saxophonist Chad Smith and tenor Ashley Faatoalia. Rachael Worby conducts this upbeat program that includes Bernstein’s famed West Side Story score arranged as a tour-de-force concerto.
Ray Ushikubo has performed with the LA Phil, LA Chamber Orchestra, Reno Philharmonic, San Diego Symphony; appeared at Carnegie Hall, Disney Hall, and on The Tonight Show; is a Davidson Fellow Laureate, and was prominently featured on the nationally syndicated From the Top. And he just turned 18!
