FALL CLASSICS CONCERT
October 16th, 2022 • Sunday 4 PM
The Kings Symphony Orchestra presents a celebration of symphonic classics. Featuring the world debut of composer Alan Hanslik’s original work, “Courage to sail”, newly commissioned by the KSO. We are thrilled to be giving voice to this beautiful new work along with music from Joseph Haydn, Tomaso Albinoni, Johann Strauss, & Camille Saint-Saens. More about Alan Hanslik below…
HANFORD HIGH SCHOOL PRESENTATION CENTER
120 E Grangeville Blvd, Hanford, CA 93230
Alan Hanslik is a multi-instrumental musician, composer and producer. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, he grew up surrounded by music, with each family member playing a different instrument.
Alan played piano, drums and accordion, and as a teen joined his father’s band playing drums. He also played in local bands of different genres, eventually touring with Jon Washington, of the British band the Fortunes.
A move to Los Angeles provided opportunities to play in jazz and experimental performance groups, as well as study with well-known musicians. But the purchase of a grande piano promoted Alan to let go of drums and start composing. He has created scores for movies, commercials and video games.
Alan also has a strong technical background and is adept at creating electronic synthesizers. Together with former NASA co-worker Steven Moniz they formed a duo, Hanslik & Moniz Experiment, producing several unique genre-crossing albums.
