Lansdowne Symphony in Copland, Bonds, Bellini and Debussy
March 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm UTC+0
Copland’s iconic work, El Salon Mexico, inspired by a dance-hall of the same name, begins the concert with its incredible energy. With great contrast but with depth and grace, Margaret Bonds’ “Montgomery Variations” was inspired by tragic events in Alabama during the struggle towards civil rights. It was recently discovered and published, decades after its composition.
Winner of this season’s Irving Ludwig Youth Competition, Kerima Adam, sings solo with the Lansdowne Symphony, and we explore the sound-world of Debussy’s “Printemps (Spring),” six days after the end of Winter. This is an exciting and meaningful concert and we hope you can join us!
