A singer’s quest to seek meaning and purpose. From a childhood immersed in gospel, to singing backup for international pop star Jennifer Hudson, Longy alumna Sirgourney Cook takes us on a journey that ultimately leads her home—balancing her love of gospel, God, and classical music.
Join the Longy Conservatory Orchestra as they present new orchestral works by the Longy community of composers: Composition Faculty Amy Beth Kirsten's Drink Me (2010), Longy alumnus Tianyi Wang's Under the Dome (2017), and current Longy student Jonathan Shin's Héloïse and Abelard (2017).
Brahms’ musical identity was encouraged and strengthened by inspiring colleagues. This recital features a rare occurrence; a joint compositional effort, and one of Brahms’ too-oft neglected masterpieces, his Quartet in A Major.
Fresh sounds invade Longy during our annual New Music Marathon. This year's marathon will feature multiple performances spread throughout the day in different rooms in Longy's historic Zabriskie House. The Neave Trio, Longy Chamber Chorus, and members of the entire Longy community will present world premieres by Longy composition students alongside pieces by Rzewski, Carter, Andres, and Paterson.
Join us for a concert of art-inspiring-art featuring works by Piazzolla, Debussy, and Bernstein. Together, our Alumni Artists, Faculty Ensemble-in-Residence, the Neave Trio, and Longy students will present a series of pieces accompanied by visual art. MassArt artist Bing Lin worked with the musicians to craft moving landscapes inspired by these classic works. When music and visual art combine, the results can be breathtaking. Don’t miss this innovative concert exploring the relationship between the auditory, emotional, and visual.
Scenes inspired by sources from Shakespeare and fairytales, to the realism of immigrant life in the tenements of New York, as well as the classics of Mozart, Beethoven, and Rossini.
