The New Bedford Symphony Orchestra to perform at the National Orchestra Conference
NEW BEDFORD – The New Bedford Symphony Orchestra has been selected to give a virtual concert at the National Conference of the League of American Orchestra, which is also held virtually in June. NBSO President and CEO Dave Prentiss congratulated Music Director Yaniv Dinur and the NBSO musicians for being selected to perform at the League conference. “We are very proud of this achievement. A national audience will now be able to appreciate the exceptional artistic talent of our orchestra.
The program features the music of four women of color who are among the most important composers of our time: Jesse Montgomery, Rena Esmail, Keiko Abe and Gabriella Lena Frank. Their pieces address questions of self-identity and draw inspiration from folk music from their traditions – African, Indian, Japanese and Latin American. The guest soloist is award-winning marimbist Eriko Daimo. Details of the concert can be found at https://nbsymphony.org/season-finale/.
The concert will also be available to audiences on the south coast. Tickets cost just $ 20 per household and are available at Zeiterion.org.
