Boston, Massachusetts
Wednesday, 8 March 2017 - 7:30 PM
This season, NEC's orchestra programs allow you to discover the music of living composers—many of them women—alongside familiar masterworks.

Jennifer Higdon writes about her City Scape, commissioned by the Atlanta Symphony, and which she calls "a metropolitan sound picture written in orchestral tones":

"The final movement, Peachtree Street, is a representation of all those roadways and main arteries that flow through cities. (Peachtree Street is the main street of downtown Atlanta, the city of my childhood.) Every main street that runs through a city is loaded with the energy and bustle of commerce, reflecting the needs and wants of its citizens through business. Because there is so much diversity in city streets, I've created a movement that explores the diverse sections of the orchestra, their relationships, and the way they combine in creating a larger voice."
