11.7.16 Changing of the Guard: Election Eve

Edward M. Pickman Concert Hall, 8:00 pm

In January of 1944, the Boston police descended upon Symphony Hall, where Stravinsky was scheduled to conduct his arrangement of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and threatened to remove the music from the stands on stage. The audience would not hear his arrangement that night and Stravinsky wouldn’t attempt to perform it again for more than a decade. Longy is going to explore both sides of the musical aisle on the night before we go to the polls. At this concert, curated by students, hear a blue and red version of our national anthem, songs drawn from campaign quotes and The Constitution, and music of John Cage, Martin Bresnick, Frederic Rzewski, and Louis Andriessen.
