We’re trying to kick-start spring on Now is the Time, Sunday, March 24th at 10 pm. Leaps and Bulls is all funky frogs and swamps, from the group Blob. Yes, Blob. Gary Schocker tempts us out of the house with Out of Doors Duets for two flutes, and Ned Rorem’s long-limbed Day Music and Night Music is for violin and piano.
The Symphony No. 5 of Charles Fussell is an expansive memorial to Virgil Thomson, and Ronn McFarlane honors all things spring with modern music for the lute, in Over the Green Earth.
John Lindberg, et al.: Leaps and Bulls
Gary Schocker: Out of Doors Duets. Bucolics, Fountain
Ned Rorem: from Day Music and Night Music
Charles Fussell: Symphony No. 5
