NEC Symphony, Wolff, Yi / Chen, Copland, Ives
Boston, Massachusetts
Wednesday, 6 April 2016 - 7:30 PM
Ensemble: NEC Symphony
Conductors: Hugh Wolff; David Yi
This season, NEC's orchestra programs allow you to discover the music of living composers, alongside familiar masterworks.

In addition to the works by Copland and Ives, led by conducting major David Yi and NEC's Calderwood Director of Orchestras Hugh Wolff respectively, tonight's program features a new work by composition student Yi Yiing Chen, led by Yi. Chen says this of her piece:

"In the beginning, I tried to capture the sound I have become most familiar with in the first two years of living in the United States, the 'music' of the New York City subway. This 'music' started a journey for me every day that I have studied in the States since September 2010. This 'music' rumbles all through Manhattan and my daily life, yet at the same time my thoughts run along with it, both quietly and loudly, in ripples of the sound. This piece was rescored in 2015."
