SEASON 76: COMING TOGETHER AGAIN
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 13, 2021
at The Klein in Bridgeport, 8 PM
Musical tradition and innovation come together in our second season concert, under the baton of guest conductor Eduardo Leandro.. Raised in a musical family in Brazil, Leandro gravitated toward percussion as he sought out the roots of the traditional music of his homeland, and still looks today for connections between the old traditions and new music. The concert is anchored by the most iconic symphony ever – Beethoven’s Fifth, the “Symphony of Fate” – and combines with the new sounds of Starburst by Jessie Montgomery. Add in Prokofiev’s exotic Violin Concerto No. 1 – with soloist, our own Deborah Wong – and this will be an evening to remember. After the pandemic months, here’s a night that ends in triumph.
