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.

Kelly Corcoran: A Conductor's Path To The Podium
Conductor Kelly Corcoran has conducted major orchestras throughout the United States and involved in many projects to reach new audiences. In 2012, Ms. Corcoran served as a guest conductor with the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony Orchestra where she talked about growing up in a non-musical family and her path to the conductor's podium. 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. Funded in part by the North Dakota Humanities Council, a nonprofit, independent state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

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.
