Assembled Memories
Boston, Massachusetts
Monday, 23 October 2017 - 7:30 PM
Celebrating the 70th anniversary of Lorna Cooke DeVaron's arrival at NEC as choral director in 1947, tonight's program features NEC premieres.

In addition to this 70-year span of new works sung by NEC choruses, the Chamber Singers will formally premiere the NEC 150th celebratory choral cycle, ÔÇťAssembled Memories" - a work featuring 5 octavos written by NEC student composers, with texts by New England poets. Composers: Bosba, Isaac Blumfield, Andrew Haig, Charles Tarver, Derek Weagle

Welcome to NEC at 150! Every generation of musicians remake and change New England Conservatory. Some, like Gunther Schuller, continue to influence our music beyond their lifetimes. Others contribute for decades, pushing the sense of what's possible by their own examples. The entire season is stuffed with chances to see the NEC legacy in exceptional, infectious, passionate action. Don't miss them!
