featuring Kev Choice and Schubert

Oakland Symphony

We look into the future of Oakland’s music with Oakland Native Kev Choice, a classically-trained pianist and composer debuting “Soul Restoration Suite”, an original symphonic piece commissioned by Oakland Symphony. Kev uses wit and creative lyricism to bring a positive and inspiring message to his unique blend of jazz, R&B, and soul. Also, for the more traditional, we are featuring Schubert, Rossini, and Bristow: Schubert was only 19 when he wrote his exuberant 5th symphony. Like Kev, he bent the genre of his day and discovered a unique symphonic voice of his own. Oakland Symphony’s high school and middle school orchestra, MUSE VIVO, joins the symphony as they play Rossini’s famous “Barber of Seville” overture–with a wink and a nod to Bugs Bunny!
