R. Carlos Nakai to Perform Vision II by Judith Sainte Croix with the San
Juan Symphony, Arthur Post, Music Director - February 19 and 20 Performances
in Farmington, New Mexico and Durango, Colorado

Native American flute virtuoso R. Carlos Nakai and the San Juan Symphony,
Arthur Post, Music Director, will perform Vision II by American composer
Judith Sainte Croix in two concerts entitled "The Song of the Earth",
on February 19th - 7:30 PM at the Farmington Civic Center, 200 West
Arrington in Farmington, New Mexico and on Sunday February 20th - 3 PM
at the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College, 1000 Rim Drive in
Durango, Colorado.

Vision II was commissioned by Heliosphere and premiered in New York City.
This 11-minute work is one of a series of pieces the composer has dedicated
to the survival of the Native people of the Americas.  Depicting Cherokee
history poetically, the piece unfolds in three sections.  The beginning
represents a point before the arrival of Europeans, then moves into the
crisis of contact with Europeans and finally in the third section is
resolved with the rebirth of the Cherokee Nation in the West.  Vision
II was recorded by Heliosphere for the Sonic Muse CD release Visions of
Light and Mystery.

Also on the concert are works by John Williams, Alan Hovhaness, R.
Carlos Nakai, Jose Pablo Moncayo, Tobias Picker and Aaron Copland.

Tickets range from $5 to $25 and can be purchased from the Farmington
Civic Center - 505-599-1148 and from the Community Concert Hall at Fort
Lewis College - 970-247-7657 or online from the San Juan Symphony at

The San Juan Symphony is a regional orchestra uniting the Four Corners
area by nurturing the art of music through education and high quality
performances that touch the soul.  In the early 1970's, amateur musicians
in Farmington, New Mexico and Durango, Colorado founded two separate
orchestras.  Today, the combined groups form the core of a 65 member
orchestra that draws musicians from the entire Four Corners region.
In his third season as Music Director of the orchestra, Arthur Post is
building a reputation for groundbreaking programming that combines the
great classics with music reflecting local land, cultures and concerns.
He enjoys a distinguished record with major orchestras in the United
States and Europe.  Visit him and the orchestra at
