Story By:

LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) — From a young age, Jacob Boland says he has had a passion for music. After being diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, Boland says music was a way to express himself.

“I started singing in my school choirs when I was eight in elementary school. Through high school, I was in the beginning men’s ensemble and worked my way up into the advanced mix ensembles,” Boland said.

Now at 22 years old, Boland is continuing to pursue his passion and is now a member of the Long Beach Camerata Singers.

The Long Beach Symphony’s March concert bids a fond farewell to the dark days and starry night skies of winter with a program that celebrates the nature of the universe, and the place music holds within it. French composer Guillaume Connesson’s fascinating Cosmic Trilogy explores the entire span of existence as we know it, posing question after musical question and offering gorgeous responses. Ralph Vaughn Williams’ Serenade to Music offers a ravishing paean to the music of the spheres, which reportedly brought audience member Igor Stravinsky to tears at its premiere performance. To conclude a mystical evening, prepare to enjoy Johannes Brahms’ magnificent masterpiece for soloists, chorus, and orchestra, his incandescent Deutsches Requiem.
