December 2016 shook us all. This evening is dedicated to the artists and dreamers lost in the tragic Ghost Ship fire and is anchored by the world premiere of Richard Marriott’s moving cello concerto commissioned in their memory. Brahms’ Requiem, featuring Oakland Symphony Chorus, contemplates death as a part of life, one that embraces its beauty and sorrow.
