Boston Modern Orchestra Project


Led by conductor Gil Rose, BMOP will be joined by Sarah Pelletier (soprano, St. Teresa I), Gigi Mitchell-Velasco (contralto, St. Teresa I), Deborah Selig (soprano, St. Settlement), Aaron Engebreth (baritone, St. Ignatius), Charles Blandy (tenor, St. Chavez), Tom McNichols (bass, Compere), and Lynn Torgove (mezzo-soprano, Commere).


The Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP), the nation’s premier orchestra dedicated exclusively to commissioning, performing, and recording new orchestral music, presents a one-night only concert performance of Virgil Thomson and Gertrude Stein’s Four Saints in Three Acts (1928). An abstruse modernist opera sans plot or formal structure, Four Saints is the perfect way for the unflagging BMOP orchestra to kick-start the new season.

Melodia Women's Choir 'Visions of Peace'
Church of the Holy Apostles
296 Ninth Avenue, NYC, New York
United States
+1 800-838-3006

Tickets: $20 advance/ $25 door ($15 adv. students and seniors)
Cynthia Powell, Conductor
Taisiya Pushkar, piano
Rita Costanzi, harp
Barbara Merjan, percussion
Transfiguration Quintet



Melodia Women’s Choir of NYC led by Artistic Director Cynthia Powell opens its eleventh season with 'Visions of Peace,' a bold and irrepressible holiday program centered on a Melodia reprise performance of Benjamin Britten’s “A Ceremony of Carols.” Composed for women's voices and harp in 1942, “A Ceremony of Carols” is one of Britten’s most beloved works, resonant for its purity of spirit and sense of hope and joy. It is a fitting tribute to mark the centenary of the English composer, born on November 22, 1913, and celebrated around the world through Britten 100 events.

In atmospheric complement to Britten’s piece, “Seven Part-Songs for Female Voices and Strings,” by Gustav Holst (1874-1934) is an ethereal and deeply haunting work set to the poetry of Robert Bridges (1844-1930). In perfect counterpoint is Paul Csonka’s (1905-1995) sensuous Spanish-language piece “Concierto de Navidad,” rarely performed settings of three Spanish Christmas carols sparked by the rhythms of Cuba.

“This concert is eclectic, but will come together beautifully,” said Powell. “Holst is a natural to pair with Britten - they both had a profound appreciation for great poetry. And Paul Csonka’s ‘Concierto de Navidad’ is a gem that will lead into several popular tunes in jazz samba style, arranged for our instrumental forces.”

Performing throughout the concert will be award-winning pianist Taisiya Pushkar (www.taisiyapushkar.com), accomplished harpist Rita Costanzi (www.ritacostanzi.com), percussionist Barbara Merjan, and the Transfiguration String Quintet.

Third annual festival produced by Composers Concordance (“enterprising new music organization” - NYTimes) has an innovative approach: each concert focuses on a specific timbre.
The festival opener, entitled 'ArtBeat' features percussion instruments in a program with 4-time Grammy winner Glen Velez, as well as the acclaimed Lukas Ligeti and Peter Jarvis. It will held at DiMenna Center on December 1st at 3pm, followed by a reception. The repeat of the program at William Paterson University on December 2nd will include a pre-concert lecture demonstration on frame-drumming and overtone singing by Glen Velez.
In addition to the mono-timbral nature of each concert on the festival, a few of them, including ArtBeat have a collaborative-interdisciplinary nature.
ArtBeat includes original sculpture-percussion by Gorazd Poposki made specifically for this event. 
Each percussionist will present a 20 - 25 minute solo set of their own repertoire. The percussionists will then join together to perform a suite written for them by Dan Cooper, Partick Grant, Milica Paranosic, Gene Pritsker and Zach Seely, featuring the sculpture-percussion instruments.
The instruments will be on the display at Gallery MC (www.GalleryMC.org), at 549 West 52nd Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues in NYC), November 16th - 31st.
