Tchaikovsky Competition winning violinist Itamar Zorman joins the orchestra for a powerful afternoon of music centerstage with Harmony from Discord. The program closes with Faure’s Requiem featuring two soloists and two choirs.

“Itamar Zorman...whose splendid playing conveyed precisely the right mix of tenderness, agitation and spiritual succor.” – The New York Times

Of Note

Kenji Bunch’s Supermaximum — referring to U.S. high-security incarceration — was inspired by the tradition of “chain gang” songs from prison camps of the Depression-era South.

Henriëtte Bosmans' piece, written in 1934, is heavy on Eastern modes — improvisatory and at the same time dramatic.

Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem is a powerful piece in seven movements, scored for soprano and baritone soloists, mixed choir, orchestra, and organ.

Bunch’s piece integrates bluegrass, hip-hop, jazz, and funk idioms into more traditional structures.
