New England Philharmonic "The Usual Orchestral Suspects" Annual Family Concert

  • Starts: 3:00 pm on Sunday, December 10, 2017
  • Ends: 5:00 pm on Sunday, December 10, 2017
There’s dreadful news from the symphony hall—the composer is dead! Join the NEP when they take on Lemony Snicket’s ‘The Composer is Dead.’ If you have ever heard an orchestra play, then you know that musicians are most certainly guilty of something. Where exactly were the violins on the night in question? Did anyone see the harp? Is the trumpet protesting a bit too boisterously? In this perplexing murder mystery, everyone seems to have a motive, everyone has an alibi, and nearly everyone is a musical instrument. But the composer is still dead. Perhaps you can solve the crime yourself. Join the Inspector as he interrogates all the unusual suspects. PROGRAM INCLUDES: John Adams: Short Ride in a Fast Machine 1986; Aaron Copland: Old American Songs, set 1 1954, Cambridge Children’s Chorus’ Training Chorus, Wendy Silverberg, Director; Nathaniel Stookey: The Composer is Dead 2006; and Concerto performed by the NEP Young Artist Competition Winner. Tickets are available via the NEP website.
Tsai Performance Center, 685 Commonwealth Avenue
