Boston Conservatory Orchestra: Songs of Reflection and Joy
Conductor Bruce Hangen leads Boston Conservatory Orchestra in Songs of Reflection and Joy, a spectacular program of works that embraces the changing season.
The glowing lineup includes an instrumental excerpt from Richard Wagner’s final opera, Parsifal, in which the character Parsifal on Good Friday “gazes in gentle rapture on wood and meadow, which are now glowing in the morning light”; Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Russian Easter Overture, an ode to nature’s bright awakening after a long and somnolent winter; and the warming songs “Aylesbury,” “The Heavenly March,” “Wondrous Love,” and “Saint's Delight,” from African American composer Ulysses Kay’s The Southern Harmony.
Additionally, this performance will feature a solo performance by the 2022–2023 Boston Conservatory at Berklee Concerto Competition winner, who will be announced this spring.
This performance has been selected as part of Boston Conservatory at Berklee's spring 2023 Center Stage collection.
