Bard College Virtual Music Festival - OUT OF THE SILENCE: A CELEBRATION OF MUSIC

Bard College Virtual Music Festival - OUT OF THE SILENCE:  A CELEBRATION OF MUSIC

This September, the Bard Music Festival joins forces with The Orchestra Now and the Bard College Conservatory to present a series of four freelive-streamed concerts for string orchestra, piano, and percussion, coming to UPSTREAMING, the Fisher Center’s virtual stage.

Out of the Silence celebrates the joy of music-making and Bard’s commitment to presenting unjustly neglected works. Programs will feature works by prominent Black composers alongside a selection of pieces from the Bard Music Festival archives, together tracing the history of classical music from the late 18th century to the present and affirming the centrality of music to life and our public culture.

PROGRAM ONE - SEPTEMBER 5
“Out of the Silence” opens with two works by the great William Grant Still: the meditative miniature Out of the Silence, from Seven Traceries and the evocative tone poem Serenade. Program One continues with the elegiac Lyric for Strings by George Walker and concludes with TŌN’s account of the exuberant String Symphony No. 8 by Felix Mendelssohn.
