Enjoy the concert version of a playlist curated by composer-conductor and 2018 MacArthur “Genius Grant” Award recipient Matthew Aucoin. "Matt’s Playlist" shuffles music written in radically different times and places and allows us to hear music in new ways and discover new and unexpected connections between new music and music written centuries ago – all of which looks ahead to the future. Internationally acclaimed baritone Rod Gilfry makes a special appearance to sing selections from Aucoin's own opera, Crossing, based on the poetry of Walt Whitman.
Programs, artists, dates, prices and availability are subject to change.
