Annie Wu

Pleasanton native Annie Wu returns home to perform François Devienne’s elegant Flute Concerto No. 7. At the age of eighteen, Annie is already an accomplished musical artist. Among her many accomplishments, she has appeared as soloist with the San Francisco Symphony and performed under the direction of Valery Gergiev at Carnegie Hall as a member of the National Youth Orchestra of the USA. We open the evening with Aaron Copland’s “Our Town,” music that captures the serenity and simplicity of Thornton Wilder’s play. Finally, we hear music full of sweeping expressive themes and majestic harmony: We celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sibelius with a performance of his richly romantic Symphony No. 1 in E minor.
