Monterey Bay Ensemble with Cabrillo Youth Chorus


CYC will join Cantiamo! Cabrillo and the Ensemble Monterey Chamber Orchestra (EMCO) in the world premiere of a new work by John Wineglass, inspired by the words of John Steinbeck

and other California poets. Emmy award-winning composer Wineglass, a long-time member of Ensemble Monterey, created Pastures of Heaven to celebrate our musical future with a vision of a past hero. Pastures of Heaven will combine the forces of Ensemble Monterey, Cantiamo! and the Cabrillo Youth Chorus to bring you an unforgettable performance. Our musical past is represented by Charles Ives’ Third Symphony, the Camp Meeting. This revolutionary work is considered by many to be the beginning of original music in America.


Finally, our concert will feature an often-requested performance of Richard Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll, the composer’s heartfelt birthday present to his wife, Cosima.
