BRITTEN, SCHUMANN & MUSSORGSKY Guest Artist: Carter Brey, Cello
The New Bedford Symphony Orchestra’s 100th season continues with another blockbuster performance that will leave you breathless!
Benjamin Britten: Four Sea Interludes from “Peter Grimes”
One of last great composers of opera, Britten has a lyrical approach and a keen sense of drama. These four haunting scenes capture the physical and emotional atmosphere of the sea.
Robert Schumann: Cello Concerto in A Minor
Carter Brey, principal cellist of the New York Philharmonic, takes on this formidable work, one of deep strength and emotion. The three movements take us on an emotional journey and are played without interruption. Schumann composed the enigmatic concerto in just 15 days but did not live to hear it performed.
Modest Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
A literal promenade through an art exhibit, Mussorgsky composed this as a memorial to his friend Viktor Hartmann, a Russian painter. A colorful depiction of the fantastical and sometimes macabre paintings, Mussorgsky wrote this as a solo piano piece. This orchestration by Maurice Ravel is by far the most popular of the work’s many arrangements.
The NBSO is a superb professional orchestra that performs with internationally renowned guest artists, annually presenting a 7-concert series of classical and pops music and a 4-concert chamber music series, as well as providing nationally recognized educational programs for the children of South Coast.

RAISIN’ CANE A Harlem Renaissance Odyssey starring Jasmine Guy
Starring the award-winning actress, singer, and dancer Jasmine Guy, and the acclaimed Avery Sharpe Jazz Trio, Raisin’ Cane celebrates and honors the legendary voices of the Harlem Renaissance through text, song, music, movement, and imagery. The words and thoughts of Langston Hughes, Countee Cullen, Zora Neale Hurston, W.E.B. Du Bois and many others, became the voice of a new generation of African-Americans looking forward but still struggling with the past and present. These thoughts, songs, and images are woven into a panoramic experience that spans this extraordinary outpouring of artistic endeavor that encapsulated the essence of 1920’s Harlem. Raisin’ Cane is a window on this critical point in American history, and its lasting impact on modern hearts and minds.
