During these midsummer days, and especially the nights, the favorite lines from Shakespeare's dream sequence come to mind. Titania's reflection, "I pray thee, gentle mortal, sing again / Mine ear is much enamour’d of thy note", seems very fitting for the times we are living through.

We are indeed "singing and playing" live again, and plan to return to the concert stage for our 2021-22 season. And, in the spirit of Shakespeare, we hope you will be enamoured with our notes. 

We have recently been working with exceptional students from the Mann Center's ACOSA program. Below, you can see a small sampling of ACOSA class activity over the past few weeks with instructors Tom Whitman and Susanna Payne-Passmore, who introduced the art of composition to a combination of 51 string players and 32 woodwinds. Photo credits: Max Grudzinski

The 2021-22 season will be brimming with stellar performances by the Network Ensemble of premieres by: Amanda HarbergTales of Lyra; Lansing McLoskey - One Book Called Ulysses; new works from Jan Krzywicki and his former student Michael Shingo-Crawford; Sebastian Currier's Waves, and Stephen Jaffe's Three Arcs.

You won't want to miss any of it; stay tuned for more details and ticketing information coming soon!

Looking forward to seeing you and experiencing new music together in the coming season!
