New World Symphony Sounds of the Times: Harmony and Understanding
7:30 PM-9:30 PM
Conductor, composer and educator Brad Lubman stands at the leading edge of modern music and returns to NWS with an explosive performance of American masters. Pulitzer Prize-winner and co-founder of “Bang on a Can,” David Lang is dedicated to making music new, and with his latest work, harmony and understanding, for orchestra and audience, the audience will participate in the piece! Play a crucial role in this U.S. premiere by joining a chorus of your fellow community members – no singing lessons required! Contemporary icon John Adams said he confronted who he was as a composer through Harmoniehehre, resulting in a dynamic marriage of American minimalism and the expressive world of European greats like Mahler, Debussy and Sibelius. Join to be a part of history, a moment of unification, AND the performance in this exclusive evening at the New World Center.
