2017-2018 Season


 

 



Artistry of Music

Inspired by works in the permanent collection at the New Britain Museum of American Art, our program will take listeners on a musical journey that draws parallels between historic periods and themes of selected pieces of art. The musical performance will be accompanied by projections of art pieces linking the visual and musical idioms. Shenandoah and Rivers of Delight are visualized in paintings of American landscapes. Working for the Dawn of Peace and The Emigrant Song give voice to works that depict the American struggle for freedom and identity. American 20th century composer Alan Hovhaness and local composer Alan Hoffman represent unique contemporary artistic expression on display and  an excerpt from Irving Fine’s Alice In Wonderland Suite as well as samples of Gershwin and Porter add fanciful and humorous connections with artwork in the collection. The presentation will surely offer something for a variety of tastes in music and art!
