While this event is open to the public, you must pre-register in order to gain access in person. No walk-ups will be allowed at Longy for performances.
This year at Longy, the entire community—artistic partners, faculty, and students alike—have been prompted with an invitation to “Begin Anywhere.”
In Orchestra FLEX’s first concert of the 22 / 23 Season, exploring the many possible meanings of this prompt is itself the destination. We begin anywhere—or to take it a step further—we begin everywhere.
Our far-reaching itinerary includes:
• Music of the spheres in Gustav Holst’s The Planets.
• Music on the very nature of existence in Joseph Haydn’s The Creation.
• Music as heard in the natural world through Peter Gilbert’s Tsukumi.
• Music of the vast human cultural history and experience through works by Sylvester Revueltas, Trevor Weston, Chen Yi, and Siamak Aghaei with Colin Jacobsen.
Guest Conductor: Roger Kalia
