As if composing a large-scale choral and orchestral work wasn’t already an incredible feat, composer and Berklee College of Music alumna Susan Botti B.M. '86 takes things a step further by sharing the stage with musicians performing her work. As the accomplished composer and soprano explained to Berklee Today, “I'm putting myself on the line just as the players in the orchestra are. When I'm a part of it with everyone else, something powerful happens with the musicians.”
Boston Conservatory at Berklee will present a special performance from the Wind Ensemble and Choruses at Old South Church on Thursday, December 12 at 8:00 p.m. as part of its final Center Stage programming for the fall semester. The Wind Ensemble and Choruses will juxtapose Susan Botti’s Cosmosis and Christopher Marshall’s L'homme armé with Anton Bruckner’s sweeping Mass No. 2 in E Minor for an evening of powerful music.
On Friday, November 1, Boston Conservatory at Berklee will kick off its 2019–2020 Center Stage season with Chamber Series: Russian Giants, a celebration of three towering figures of classical music: Sergei Rachmaninov, Sergei Prokofiev, and Dmitri Shostakovich.
