Resonance Ensemble presents “New Frontiers” Concert
September 20, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$5 - $20
Resonance Ensemble presents “New Frontiers” Concert on Sunday 20th September 2020, 3.00 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. at The Piano, 156 Armagh Street, Christchurch
Concert of American Classics.
Helen Renaud conducts music from America – Copland, Bernstein, Barber, Dvorak
Join Resonance Ensemble to celebrate the diversity of music inspired by America. From the simple beauty of the Appalachian Mountains, the lasting impressions of Dvořák visiting America for the first time in his American Suite, to the jazz-inspired bustle of New York.
The programme features Copland’s Appalachian Spring, On the Town by Bernstein, and Barber’s haunting Adagio for Strings. The orchestra includes some extra instruments: saxes, piano and a typewriter, as an addition to the percussion section. Leroy Anderson’s quirky and innovative Typewriter, written in 1950, uses all the iconic sounds of the typewriter. This fun, novel piece completes the journey through American orchestral music.
