08:03 am - Umka and Bro at the Mehanata Bulgarian Bar

The veteran post-Soviet underground band Umka & Bronevik (or simply Bro) plays the release shows to present their first LP, "The Closer Sessions". Recorded at San Francisco's Closer Studios in May 2009, this limited edition LP features striking new versions of 10 songs spanning two decades.

Anna "Umka" Gerasimova is one of the main personalities of the Soviet/post-Soviet musical underground. She started writing songs in the 80's. After some early homemade recordings she took a break to finish her PhD in early Soviet avant-garde poetry. Meanwhile, Umka's bootleg tapes spread widely, and upon returning back to music career, in 1995, she found herself an instant unofficial celebrity. She put together a rock group and since then never stopped touring around Russia, former Soviets and abroad. Their list of influences include the Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead, Iggy Pop, Bob Dylan. Umka and Bro have released nearly 20 CDs, but being hardcore 60s-70s fans, they always wanted to go vinyl. In May 2009, they did it - in the heart if the 60s, San Francisco, in a studio called Closer Recordings. Now, touring in the US for the 8th time, they play the release shows to present their LP, released by a small new independent label Portofranco Records.

Net proceeds will benefit One World Symphony's Community Music Program -- a program which enables students and parents who would otherwise not be in a position to afford classical concerts to obtain tickets to attend live performances during the One World Symphony season, such as our upcoming Halloween program.

Sail the open seas on the first leg of our season, venturing to the dramatic coasts of Ireland and Scotland.

Vaughan Williams's gripping one-act music drama Riders to the Sea is an emotional response to the wonder of the natural world, a losing battle with the sea which tyrannizes the lives of North Atlantic islanders. Mendelssohn guides us into Fingal's Cave -- an attraction that has provoked fascination and awe in many tourists -- in his Hebrides Overture. The piece echoes not only the sea waves, but depicts the vastness of the cave and its isolation from the rest of the world. One of Mahler's most profound and restrained songs, "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen" ("I have become lost to the world") expresses how loss and love coexist in a world of weariness and uncertainty.

One World Symphony continues to embrace the diversity of contemporary culture by performing Björk's emotionally charged New World (heard in the film Dancer in the Dark) in a world premiere orchestration for vocal rock band and symphony orchestra. Paulo Coehlo's enchanting novel provides the inspiration for Hong'sFrom The Alchemist, which traces the wayfarer's journeys -- through all obstacles, to learn to listen to one's heart and realize one's destiny.

Performance length: 80 minutes without intermission
