Event Description


Come and hear us perform with these outstanding ensembles!

James MacMillan is the pre-eminent Scottish composer of his generation. He first attracted attention with the acclaimed BBC Proms premiere of The Confession of Isobel Gowdie (1990). He read music at Edinburgh University and took Doctoral studies in composition at Durham University with John Casken.James MacMillan was awarded a Knighthood in the 2015 Queen's Birthday honors. Boosey & Hawkes exclusively publishes him.

The New York Times calls Scottish composer Sir James MacMillan as “ceaselessly inventive, evocative and penetrating.” He joins Pacific Symphony on a spiritual journey with his major commission “Fiat Lux” (“Let There Be Light”); a perfect pairing to Strauss’ eternal tone poem “Death and Transfiguration.”
