For the 40th anniversary of the renown Chamber Orchestra of the South Bay (Dr. Frances Steiner, director), Maffe has accepted a double commission. The first will be a world premiere of a new work for strings, harp, and piano to be performed on November 13th, the second will be a film music-themed piece to be performed in spring of 2023.
About the orchestra:
"For 39 years, the COSB has been a beacon of classical music in the South Bay. A fully professional orchestra, it is the resident classical orchestra of Palos Verdes Performing Arts at the Norris Theatre and the only orchestra in the South Bay offering a full season with nationally and internationally-recognized soloists.
Maffe reacts, "There really is nothing that can compare to live music, being in the collaboration with so many professional musicians is a humbling experience, and I hope I can do the ensemble justice for their forty-year milestone."
