The San Diego Symphony’s annual January Festival returns in its fourth year entitled, Hearing the Future. Throughout the festival, which runs January 9 - 27, 2019, the organization explores and celebrates the power of music and art to give voice to the evolution and revolutions in the world at large. The festival, curated by composer-conductor Matthew Aucoin (b.1990), will shine a spotlight on the music being made today – from composers and performers who are still in high school, to a 90-year-old jazz master. The festival will also explore the way music from the past — from Haydn, Beethoven and Berlioz to the creators of African-American spirituals — engaged with the most urgent issues of their time.

At 90 years-young, National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master vocalist Sheila Jordan has had a remarkable seven-decade career including collaborations with bebop legend Charlie Parker. She continues to bring an irrepressible vibrancy to her performances and to her longstanding commitment to jazz education. For this concert, she will be joined by her longtime duo partner, bassist Cameron Brown, and by special guest artist Zion Dyson, a dynamic 17 year-old San Diego vocalist who is a senior at Bishops School.
