Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras Presents: A Chamber Music Concert
Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras (NMYO) present a chamber music concert on Sunday, March 3, 2024 at 3:00 pm in the Shalin Liu Performance Center, 37 Main St., Rockport, MA 01966.
“Our Chamber Music Concert features all of NMYO’s Symphony Orchestra and Select Flute Choir musicians,” says Gerry Dolan, NMYO’s Music Director. “This year we also feature a saxophone quartet, piano quintet, and a piece for harp and woodwinds.”
The concert is the culmination of an eight-week rehearsal period during which each of the small string, woodwind, flute, brass, saxophone, and percussion ensembles rehearse with visiting professional musicians. These thirteen small ensembles will perform music by both classical and modern composers including Ed Argenziano, Gustav Holst, Dmitri Shostakovich, and William Grant Still.
Join us in person for this free-to-the public performance at the beautiful Shalin Liu Performance Center. NMYO is committed to making its concerts accessible to all patrons and will make reasonable accommodations when possible. For assistance, contact the NMYO office at 978-309-9833.
