WGBH Radio celebrates 99.5 All Classical’s new place in the cultural life of New England with an all-day festival of music. The wide world of classical music will be explored with an experience unlike any other: demonstrations, displays and performances designed to put guests at the center of the music.
The Festival will include performances by Vivace Trio, the youngest chamber group to ever appear on NPR’s From the Top; Music at Eden’s Edge, presenting a delightful tribute to Mozart and the world of bugs; chamber music from the Chameleon Arts Ensemble; early music by women composers from La Donna Musicale; a chance to interact with composers and their music, with WordSong; music and visual art from the New Gallery Concert Series; vocal music from the Libella Quartet, a 200th birthday tribute to Chopin from pianist Max Levinson; and “Marimba Magic®” from The Rivers School Conservatory, among others.
Guests will be able to experience composition first hand, when the MIT Media Lab demonstrates the new HyperScore system, an innovative technology that has transformed the lives of people with special needs.
Music librarian Alice Abraham will be on hand to guide visitors through WGBH’s extensive music collection, while 99.5 All Classical hosts Laura Carlo, Cathy Fuller, Ray Brown, and Brian McCreath will interact with guests.
To encourage a love of music and provide learning tools, interactive exhibits will be provided by New England Conservatory, Handel & Haydn Society, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston Lyric Opera, Boston Philharmonic, and Johnson Strings.
This event is $10 for WGBH members and $20 for non-members. RSVP is required, to reserve your ticket, please visit: http://www.995allclassical.org
