Let Their Be Light
VIVIAN FUNG: Harp Concerto
GUSTAV MAHLER: Symphony No. 5
Described as the “Yo Yo Ma of the harp,” Bridget Kibbey opens the NBSO’s new season with Vivian Fung’s Harp Concerto – a piece that takes the instrument’s capabilities to the extreme, making it sound at times like a zither as well as a bass guitar. The NBSO follows with its full forces, performing Mahler’s monumental Fifth Symphony – a journey that begins with a dark funeral march and ends with a thousand-sun explosion of the joy of being alive.
CHAMBER MUSIC SERIES
The Southcoast Chamber Music Series (SCCMS) was formed to present high quality classical chamber music for the communities of Southeastern MA. Each program presents an engaging array of styles, timbres, and artists in lively acoustic environments throughout the Southcoast.
