BRITTEN, SCHUMANN & MUSSORGSKY
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. For $10 tickets for children and students under age 22, please call or visit The Z box office, 508-994-2900. For discounted season tickets, please call the NBSO office at 508-999-6276.

An Evening of Healing Messages from Above with Medium Candace Dalton
Join us for an amazing evening of Healing Messages from Above with Medium Candace Dalton!  Connect with your loved ones in Heaven in this two hour event, where Candace will deliver messages of hope, healing and precise validations from your loved ones on the other side! Candace is the niece of internationally renowned medium Maureen Hancock. Candace has been featured on national television, including The Ricki Lake Show and The Style Network, and has been featured as a recurring guest on several radio stations, including Fun 107.1 and WBSM 1420. As a young child Candace has always had the gift to connect to the other side without even truly knowing it.  Candace has always believed in Heaven and life on the other side but never knew "Medium" even existed.  At the age of 7 her Aunt Pam passed away unexpectedly and Candace was immediately receiving signs from her. Six years later Candace's cousin Sean who was exceptionally close to her, passed while doing what he loved, working on his car.  It was then that Sean became a guardian in Heaven and guided Candace to trust her gift that she was given.  This was just the start to helping many and believes Sean is the ultimate reasoning behind this new journey.  After graduating high school in 2008, Candace attended cosmetology school in Rhode Island where there were new faces and of course, spirits beside them.  Word had spread fast about her gift during the first week of school. She began to trust her intuition and began reading almost every day.   She realized her gift lifted people from grief, filled the soul with hope and allowed people to continue living this life in a lighter way. Candace took the leap of faith in 2009 and began to do private and group readings to help release the grief for many. From there, her mediumship reputation began to spread and she began doing large gallery readings and fundraisers. Candace is very passionate about her mediumship work and is thankful to God and the Universe that she is able to help people in a very sacred way.  Seating is limited to 30 people, so don't wait to book! *Doors open at 6:00PM. Please park on street ONLY.   *Please note not everyone attending this event will receive a reading. Entertainment purposes only, no refunds or transfers.

When: Mar 31, 2016 6 PM in New Bedford, Massachusetts (Thu, 31 Mar 2016 18 )
