Idyllwild Arts Academy Orchestra: What’s New?

World premieres


In celebration of the school’s 25th anniversary, the young virtuosi of the Idyllwild Arts Academy Orchestra perform a program of works commissioned by and written for the orchestra. Spanning traditions and crossing genres, the concert features world-premiere works by Rufus Reid, Peter Askim, Pierre Jalbert and Jan Radzynski, and celebrates the diversity of styles and influences that Idyllwild Arts represents. Two of the works feature soloists—Jan Radzynski's new work for violin and orchestra and Music Director and Composer-in-Residence Peter Askim's new Viola Concerto, featuring Roger Myers, Chair of the String Department at University of Texas at Austin. World-renowned jazz bassist and composer Rufus Reid's new work blends and blurs the boundaries of jazz and classical orchestral music. The orchestra also premieres the astonishingly beautiful new music of Rome Prize recipient and Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Stoeger Award-winner Pierre Jalbert.
