SACRA/PROFANA presents Local Connections, a chance to experience the choral music that San Diego has to offer and the connections to some of the biggest names in music.

Did you know that Robert Shaw served as Music Director of the San Diego Symphony or that Benjamin Britten resided in Escondido while fleeing the violence of WWII? Not to mention that Bing Crosby, George Harrison, Jason Mraz, and Eddie Vedder all once called San Diego home. All of the composers in this carefully crafted program have local ties (some more widely known than others) to “America’s Finest City”.

SACRA/PROFANA is honored to present this concert in three separate venues: the Maritime Museum of San Diego which showcases some San Diego history, ARTS Center which is dedicated to providing creative arts programs for local youth facing adversity, and the Oceanside Museum of Art which features the work of fantastic local artists.

Under the direction of Associate Artistic Director Juan Carlos Acosta, Local Connections will truly represent local choral artists singing music by composers with local ties surrounded by local art and history.

As a composer, Hamlisch won virtually every major award: three Oscars, four Grammys, four Emmys, a Tony, and three Golden Globes (not to mention…the Pulitzer Prize!). On Broadway, he wrote the music for long-running shows A Chorus Line, They’re Playing Our Song, Sweet Smell of Success, Smile, The Goodbye Girl andImaginary Friends. His more than 40 motion picture scores include his Oscar®-winning score and song for The Way We Were and his adaptation of Scott Joplin’s music for The Sting. And who can forget Marvin’s many concerts as San Diego Symphony’s Principal Pops Conductor? This memorable concert will feature music from a career truly dedicated to the power of timeless music.
