RENEWAL - October 2019
In October of 2019, Intersection presented RENEWAL - a musical program featuring Intersection instrumentalists, Portara, percussionists Lee Vinson and Ji Hye Jung along with Sandbox Percussionists Terry Sweeney and Jonny Allen, conducted by Kelly Corcoran. Sarah Kirkland Snider's "Mass for the Endangered" is about the need to preserve our planet and Viet Cuong's "Renewal" is inspired by alternative energy sources such as wind and solar power. Snider's work is for chorus and instrumental ensemble and featured Portara. Cuong's piece is for 4 percussion soloists and instrumental ensemble and showcases a variety of sounds, instruments and colors. Both works emphasize the value of nature and our planet and we hope to shed light on the beauty, fragility and resilience of our planet through this performance and our partnerships. Composer Viet Cuong was in attendance at the concert.

About the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund In 2008, Minnesota voters passed a landmark piece of legislation — the Minnesota Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment — which provided funding to public television stations serving audiences in Minnesota. Its mission is to help preserve and document the treasures of culture, history, and heritage that make Minnesota special, and to increase access to the natural and cultural resources we all share.

STRAUSS Horn Concerto No. 1 in E-Flat Major Richard Deane, horn BRAHMS Symphony No. 2 in D Major Inspired by the winds that helped propel a thousand-mile cycling journey, Jessie Montgomery’s Caught by The Wind opens the evening with a powerful meditation on the cycle of life. Lexington-native Richard Deane, Principal Horn of the New York Philharmonic, returns to his hometown orchestra as soloist for Strauss’ Horn Concerto No. 1. Deane grew up playing in the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra, and attending Lexington Philharmonic concerts. Brahms’ delightful Symphony No. 2, which famously recycles his well-known “Brahms’ Lullaby,” tops off an evening of works both powerful and ebullient.
