This past Friday, Minna Choi gathered with Maestro Michael Morgan, her co-conductor, The Pacific Boychoir, and a local all-star line-up including Geographer, Rogue Wave, John Vanderslice, and Diana Gameros to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Magik*Magik Orchestra, aptly titled “When We Were Young.”

The three-plus hour event, held at the ornate Fox Theatre, kicked off with a cover of Gary Jules’ “Mad World” and continued on with Vanderslice brilliantly channeling Simon & Garfunkel with his rendition of “America.” Even Janet Jackson’s “Again” got a nod.

Choi is renowned for working with artists from a diverse range of backgrounds and disciplines and, as promised, the evening’s performances effortlessly melded rock with classical stylings for a truly transcendent experience.
