08/03/2018 - Concerto Night at Bear Valley Music Festival – August 3 at 7 PM
Bear Valley, CA...This concert highlights two long-time members of the Bear Valley Orchestra. Maestro Michael Morgan conducts the Divertimento Concertante for double bass and orchestra by Nino Rota with soloist David Murray, and Vivaldi’s Oboe Concerto in F RV455 with soloist Tom Nugent. The program also includes Pacific Rounds, an orchestral work by rising California composer Chris Wong.



A mere 3.5-hour drive from San Francisco, Bear Valley is known primarily as a ski resort. Now in his sixth summer as music director, internationally recognized conductor Michael Morgan has put Bear Valley and the Highway 4 corridor on the map as a summer destination as well, drawing an audience of thousands.

Highlights of this year's festival include tributes to Tom Petty and The Eagles, a concert by the real and authentic rock band Pablo Cruise, a reunion performance of Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto by legendary pianist Olga Kern and the festival's retired conductor Carter Niece, the world-premiere of a new commission by composer David Conte, and a performance by world-famous jazz violinist Mads Tolling. Following the popularity of their Bear Valley debut concert last year, the Thalea String Quartet returns as the festivals ensemble-in-residence. The classical lineup includes Beethoven’s glorious Ninth Symphony in partnership with the Mother Lode Chorale, and Schumann's Symphony No. 4. Other renowned artists are cellist Emil Miland, violinist Dawn Harms and Italian guitarist Peppino d'Agostino. There's even a sampling of Broadway and opera this year with soprano Shawnette Sulker, mezzo-soprano Betany Coffland, tenor Jack Wilkins, and baritone Eugene Brancoveanu.

"This is the most significant cultural event of the year in our scenic part of the Sierra," says executive director Eman Isadiar. "We always strive to present the widest possible variety of artists and musical styles to appeal to every taste and every generation."

Tickets and information are available online at www.bearvalleymusic.org or by calling 209-813-0554. Lodging is available in Bear Valley and in nearby Tamarack and Arnold. A pre-concert gourmet dinner can be added to all evening concert tickets, and a round trip shuttle ride may be reserved in advance from Murphys, Forest Meadows, Arnold and Dorrington.

About Bear Valley Music Festival
The Bear Valley Music Festival is a yearly summer event in Bear Valley, California, located about 180 miles east of San Francisco at just above 7200 feet elevation in the Sierra Nevada. The festival currently begins on the second-to-last Friday in July and ends three Sundays later, drawing a total audience of roughly four thousand attendees. Under the direction of internationally recognized conductor Michael Morgan since 2012, the festival strives to appeal to a wide demographic by presenting a variety of artists and styles of music including classical, rock, country and jazz. The concerts are held in a tent erected to serve as a concert hall, equipped with a stage large enough to hold a symphony orchestra.

History
In 1967, orchestra conductor, John Gosling and his wife Margaret were driving through the Stanislaus National Forest and found themselves in the small town of Bear Valley. At that time, Bear Valley consisted of a small enclave of homes, a hostel, and the Bear Valley Lodge. The town was nestled on the picturesque southern slope of the ski resort known as Mount Reba. John Gosling’s fledgling idea to begin a festival was realized just one year later.

The inaugural concert at the Bear Valley Music Festival saw a 38-person orchestra brimming out of Bear Valley Lodge’s Cathedral Lounge. Residents opened their homes to musicians, meals were served family-style in the Lodge Dining Room, and the lounge was packed to the balconies that flank the central room. During those humble beginnings, John Gosling shared his time between Bear Valley and the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra. Maestro Gosling and a dedicated group of founders, musicians, and volunteers continued to make music in a variety of venues – the Lodge, under the open skies, and finally in a large circus tent. The repertoire expanded to include: Broadway show-tunes, opera, chamber music, educational programs, and guest artists from around the world.

In 1985, Carter Nice, then the Conductor of the Sacramento Symphony, succeeded John Gosling as Music Director and Conductor. Under his direction, the BVMF Orchestra expanded in numbers and geographic reach. Players were attracted from New York, Florida, New Orleans, Indiana, and all over California. Bear Valley became the summer home to many of these players. Family members and friends came to enjoy the High Sierras in the summer and listen to the splendid music.

As the Festival grew, the classical music was supplemented with opera, Broadway show tunes, and opening weekend acts of contemporary and country music. Past guest artists have included: Dave Mason, José Feliciano, Roseanne Cash, Glen Campbell, the Mamas and the Papas, The Big Bad Voo Doo Daddies, and John Corbett.

In the summer of 2012, Michael Morgan, Music Director of the Oakland East Bay Symphony and Sacramento Philharmonic succeeded Carter Nice as Music Director. Morgan is an award-winning innovator in programming and a forward-thinking artist. As it approaches it’s 50th anniversary, the new era of the Bear Valley Music Festival will honor the traditions of the Festival, and expand the programming toward new horizons.
