Palaver Strings | Very Open Rehearsal

Wednesday, March 20, 2024   |   7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Free – $20.00

Join Palaver and Longy for a very open dress rehearsal of the Visions and Miracles program.

The ensemble will be rehearsing excerpts from their one-hour program that brings together music that is transcendent in nature, drawing inspiration from dreams, medieval chant, renaissance polyphony, spirituality, and the power of silence. Anchored by Christopher Theofanidis’ otherworldy composition of the same name, Visions and Miracles takes us on a journey through the gentle sound worlds of Arvo Part, Max Richter, and Caroline Shaw, interspersed with excerpts of Mendelssohn’s Sinfonia No. 1. With mesmerizing harmonies and moments of joy, grief, and gentleness, Visions and Miracles is evocative and reflective, grounding and transcendent.

This event is part of the residency by Palaver Strings, culminating in the concert Visions and Miracles on Thursday, March 21 at 8pm.
