Early California Artists, such as Christian Nahl, painted the Gold Rush. Grand landscapes and the idea of “Westward Ho!” were represented by artists Albert Bierstadt, William Kieth, Jon Muir, and Thomas Hill. Grace Hudson painted the Indians. Leland Stanford and the railroad tycoons connected California to the rest of the country and stories by Mark Twain and Bret Harte were stirring up interest in the Wild West.
This recital showcases nine young musicians who are members of the Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Orchestra. Students will perform a variety of works including Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini, Glazunov’s Sax Concerto, Griffes’ Poem, Raise the Roof by Daugherty for Timpani, Legend for violin by Wieniawski, Haydn’s Cello Concerto, Von Weber’s Clarinet Concerto, Bruch's Kol Nidrei on viola and Pakhmutova's Trumpet Concerto.

At the turn of the century, explosive events changed the art world, including the 1906 Earthquake and a modern art show in New York. Tonalist painter Arthur Mathews created one of California’s first unique art styles. Journalists, painters and writers, such as Jack London joined the Bohemian Club. Architect Bernard Maybeck helped rebuild the city. Alma de Bretteville Spreckels built the Palace of Legion of Honor in her battle against the de Young family for social prominence.
Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes of the 1906 earthquake, San Francisco put on a Fair to end all Fairs. We will ‘virtually’ visit this amazing event. The Suffragettes will be there along with Lotta Crabtree and John Philip Sousa. We’ll view art in the Palace of Fine Arts, visit the Yellowstone Park exhibit, see the Montessori School in action, and even go on the Aeroscope ride 285 feet in the sky. We’ll meet Fatty Arbuckle, Henry Ford and Edison. How did the Expo help the Bay Area recover from the Quake? Who were the politicians, designers and artists behind the Expo’s tremendous success? Come on down for the fun…there will be popcorn!
