BSO Insights Series
at Symphony Hall (6-7pm)
CHAMBER MUSIC CONCERT II
Boston Symphony Orchestra
In conjunction with the BSO's programs marking the Shakespeare anniversary, the BSO will offer an "Insights Series" in collaboration with Harvard Department of Music Professor Thomas Kelly. Established in 2012 with the support of the NEA, the "Insights Series" offers chamber music performances and moderated panel discussions, all designed to deepen audience engagement with BSO repertoire by providing a glimpse into the artistic process of the composers, performers, and conductors involved in the BSO's performances and related programming.
"Conversations with Creators" will take place on Tuesday nights at Symphony Hall moderated by Professor Kelly. Initial plans for this project include a conversation between the actors from the BSO's performances of Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream music and Bill Barclay of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London; a discussion of Hans Abrahamsen's let me tell you with soprano Barbara Hannigan, writer Paul Griffiths (lyricist for the work), and the composer; and a discussion of the compositional process with George Tsontakis and BSO English horn principal Robert Sheena.
