New England Conservatory Announces Fall Classical Concerts Featuring A World Premiere & More

New England Conservatory has announced an expansive fall season of classical and contemporary music concerts featuring a diverse roster of ensembles and programming. Ensembles large and small perform in NEC's world-class venues, including Jordan Hall and the Plimpton Shattuck Black Box Theatre.

A major highlight is the 75th Anniversary of the NEC Choral Department, founded in 1947 and led by Lorna Cooke DeVaron-the first woman appointed to such a leadership position at a collegiate level. Performances to celebrate the department include a concert on October 25, with "Beyond the Night Sky," a pillar work on the program composed by Cheryl Frances-Hoad which honors the 75th birthday of famed physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking, and Cecilia McDowell's 'Night Flight," a work celebrating the achievements of American aviator Harriet Quimby. Following is a November 17 performance of Kile Smith's work "The Consolation of Apollo," a 30-minute a cappella work with percussion that tells the story of the Apollo 8 lunar mission. And the return of NEC Holiday Pops takes place in a festive concert on December 12 at Jordan Hall.

Hugh Wolff conducts the NEC Philharmonia in the world premiere of Elena Langer's "Leonora's Dream," a work in response to Beethoven's Leonore Overture No. 2 on November 16.

Performances by the NEC Philharmonia, Symphony, and Chamber Orchestra feature groundbreaking works by Jesse Montgomery, Silvestre Revueltas, Kati Agócs, Gunther Schuller, Henry Brant, Gary Powell Nash, Erqing Wang, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, John Luther Adams, Anna Clyne, Michael Tippet, Charles Ives, Ludwig van Beethoven, Richard Strauss, Claude Debussy, and many more.

The Opera Department presents "Scenes from Yiddish Theater" October 26-28; Benjamin Britten's "The Turn of the Screw" November 17-20; and an evening of Handel arias and Shakespeare monologues December 13-14. The Voice and Collaborative Piano Departments present a series of thought-provoking "Liederabend" and "Song and Verse" concerts.
