NMYO's Afternoon of Concerts
Presented by Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras
May 5, 2013
The Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras will be presenting their Spring Afternoon of Concerts on Sunday, May 5th at Gordon College Chapel in Wenham, MA. The afternoon will be split into two events – a concert at 2:30pm featuring Prelude and Overture String Ensemble, Intermezzo Orchestra, Junior Flute Choir, and Flute Choir; and a concert at 5:00pm featuring the Symphony Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and Select Flute Choir. Works by NMYO’s composer-in-residence Robert Bradshaw will be performed at both concerts, with the Symphony Orchestra giving a world premiere of Las Aparencias Engañan during the 5:00pm concert. This concert is free and open to the public and appeals to all ages. Each concert will last between an hour and two hours and both will be followed by a reception after the performance. The NMYO Silent Auction will take place during the concerts as well. This concert is sponsored, in part, by the Institution for Savings, with an additional grant from the Hamilton-Wenham Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency. Partial support for the Composer-in-Residence program and the commission of Las Aparencias Engañan comes from New England Biolabs.
