The coronavirus pandemic has prompted arts organizations in San Diego and across the nation to cancel their fall and winter seasons, but not Camarada. The enterprising chamber-music-and-beyond group will celebrate its 26th anniversary by releasing a new album of Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons” and pivoting to six online concerts that will be livestreamed from the La Jolla Music Society’s Baker-Baum Concert Hall.
Camarada’s reimagined new season, billed as “Unstoppable,” will launch Nov. 1 with “Recuerdos de los Dias” (“Memory of the Days”), a Day of the Dead-themed concert showcasing such Latin-American composers as Andres Martin, Michael Ponce and Miguel de Aguilla.
The season will conclude May 15 with the world premiere of Andres Martin’s “Unstoppable,” a trio for flute, violin and bass, along with pieces by Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Madeleine Dring and Argentinian nuevo tango pioneer Astor Piazzolla.
