Event Details

Thomas C. Duffy, Music Director. Featuring:

• “A Child’s Garden of Dreams” by David Maslanka is
a deeply rich piece, written as a meditation on the vivid dream images of a
dying girl. It is accompanied by projections of the pastel drawings the
composer made with his left hand while wrestling with the act of composing the

“Trains of Thought” by
Alex Shapiro. The electronically reproduced sounds of the chords and rhythms of
a high-speed train in motion weave in and out of the musical texture provided
by the band.


• “Russian Christmas Music by Alfred Reed was commissioned in 1944 as a
tribute to the friendship between the Russian and American allies in WWII. It celebrates
the common bonds between peoples, which sustain regardless of political
divisions and governmental disagreements.

• “Duplicity” by Yale
College sophomore Rory Bricca represents the dance between honesty and
deception that plays out subconsciously in our minds. Tonight’s performance is
the world premiere.
