Respecting the First (Amendment) San Jose Chamber Orchestra Commission

The San Jose Chamber Orchestra, with their adventuresome conductor Barbara Day Turner, has commissioned Respecting the First (Amendment) for string orchestra and electronics made from readings of and about the first amendment. The premiere is coming right up on Sunday, 3/29 at St. Francis Episcopal in San Jose, CA. At a time when the rights guaranteed by this amendment are disputed, and when  knotty issues surrounding the limits of free speech have come to the fore, Respecting the First (Amendment) reminds us of what is at stake.  Find out more on the composition page!
