The Monterey Symphony will open the 73rd season – Sound Waves – with Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 9, “The Great;” and a new work from composer Alex Berko, commissioned in collaboration with the Big Sur Land Trust, entitled Among Waves.

Berko, an exceptional student at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, spent a week in residence at the Glen Deven Ranch in Big Sur, drawing inspiration from the deep beauty of the landscape for inclusion in his new orchestral work. Glen Deven Ranch played a role in the first commission with the Big Sur Land Trust, resulting in Big Sur, the Night Sun by esteemed composer John Wineglass. Do not miss this opportunity to hear the premier of the Alex Berko’s Among Waves, the second work in this series, with Max Bragado-Darman and the Monterey Symphony!
