Live stream youtube premiere:

This original performance virtually weaves together music, movement, acting, poetry, and visual arts inspired by the islands that are our university’s namesake, and runs less than an hour. Drs. KuanFen Liu and Catherine Scott Burriss co-direct this unique integration of music, dance, theater, visual arts, and digital media arts. Talented students from over half a dozen majors at California State University Channel Islands collaborate to research and create original and adapted performance elements set to The Channel Islands Orchestral Suite, an original composition by Ashley Hoyer that was commissioned by Dr. Liu and had its premiere in the fall of 2019.
