Music is the Power (2007)

At the heart of “Music Is the Power” lies text and imagery written about music by San Joaquin county students. Funded by a Music Alive grant to work with Peter Jaffe and local musicians, Chris Brubeck’s goal was to engage directly with students through their feelings about music. Chris Brubeck wrote music to the words of students expressing why they love music.

Premiered by the Stockton Symphony with Peter Jaffe conducting.

The piece combines orchestra, pop soloists, small jazz combo, and 200-plus choristers. The premiere included choristers from the Stockton Chorale, University of the Pacific, and Delta College.
