For the first time since March, New Haven Symphony Orchestra musicians are gathering together in person to make music. On
Saturday, October 17 Sunday, October 18 (postponed due to weather) and Saturday, October 24 at 2pm, musicians from the New Haven Symphony Orchestra will perform in small, socially-distant ensembles at the Canal Dock Boathouse on Long Wharf Drive in New Haven.
The first concert on
October 17 October 18 will feature a percussion duo and string trio, and the second concert on October 24 will feature the Symphony’s brass quintet. The two varied programs will include a range of diverse classics and popular solo and small ensemble music, including pieces by Bach, Bernstein, Gershwin, Debussy, Sousa, and Fats Waller. The performances will be outdoors on the facility’s extensive patio facing the water.
NHSO CEO Elaine C. Carroll says, “Live performance has become a most precious and appreciated commodity since the pandemic struck. We have missed playing for our city and are so excited to be able to gather together for these delightful concerts. Our city’s beautiful waterfront property will make for a wonderful and -most importantly – safe location for a small group of our musicians to gather together and make music for you.”
Principal Timpanist Michael Singer says, “The musicians of our orchestra have truly missed performing together and for audiences since the pandemic began. It means so much to all of us to be able to gather, even in these unusual circumstances, to make music for our community.” Singer will perform with his wife, Principal Percussionist Aya Kaminaguchi, as part of the
October 17 October 18 program.
