Berkeley Symphony Presents: Remembrance
- Shostakovich—Symphony No. 13: Set to the poetry of Yevgeny Yevtushenko, Shostakovich’s gorgeous and harrowing masterpiece that examines the Babi Yar massacre of World War II, in which Nazis murdered tens of thousands of Ukrainian Jews. The five-part song cycle and choral symphony offers a blistering denunciation of anti-Semitism and other social ills.
- The Talent: Under the baton of Music Director Joana Carneiro, the Berkeley Symphony is joined by bass soloist Denis Sedov as well as a chorus of men from alumni of the Chamber Chorus of the University of California, alumni of the Pacific Boychoir Academy, and members of the St. John of San Francisco Russian Orthodox Chorale under Chorusmaster Marika Kuzma.

About Berkeley Symphony
- 1969: British maestro Adrian Boult's protégé Thomas Rarick debuts the Berkeley Promenade Orchestra—which, in true '60s spirit, performs wearing casual clothes in unconventional settings while being conducted entirely by good vibes.
- 1978: Kent Nagano takes the reins as music director, heralding such changes as programming focusing on rarely heard 20th-century scores, a switch to formal attire, and a name change.
- 1984: The orchestra joins forces with Frank Zappa for a critically acclaimed concert featuring elaborate stage sets and life-size puppets.
- 2003: The orchestra gets a comfortable pullout sofa and therefore its first composer-in-residence: Naomi Sekiya, whose Sinfonia delle Ombre for two guitars and orchestra debuts later that year.
- 2009: Joana Carneiro becomes the third music director in the orchestra's 40-year history, forging relationships with prominent Bay Area composers such as John Adams, Gabriela Lena Frank, and Paul Dresher.
