Four stories. Four ideas. Four ways of listening. We want to guide you through vastly different music.
But we also want to show you our take, how we listen to it. And the ways that these composer’s lives and our lives intersect.
What’s your take? Join us and find out. Why is music such a powerful catalyst for feeling and connection? How can we get even more out of this listening experience? New World Symphony Fellows invite you into an imaginative listening party that will engage your senses, provide insight into the mind of a musician and transform how you listen to music during this special one-night only performance.
Mentored by Michael Tilson Thomas; Blake-Anthony Johnson, Francisco Joubert Bernard, Chloe Tula, and Dominic Brancazio share musical works that mean the most to them, welcoming your take on the pieces in an interactive, all-right-answers environment.
This journey of impressions and emotions transports us from pastoral mysticism to intoxicating sensuality, to the wildness of the sea and the fantasies of mythical beasts. Plus, as always when the Fellows are in the driver’s seat, be prepared for a few surprises along the way.
The experience continues following the concert, as the Fellows lead an insightful post-concert chat for reflection and audience questions.
