Breaking Boundaries: A concert by Bridges, a String Orchestra
Bridges, a string orchestra, will present Breaking Boundaries, on November 1, 2019, at Bainbridge Performing Arts beginning at 7:30 p.m. Violinist and founder Pat Strange leads the 12-member conductor-less ensemble made up of musicians from the Bainbridge Island community.
Following their successful debut concert last fall, Bridges will again bring exciting and innovative string orchestra music to the community. Pat Strange states: “Our November concert, ‘Breaking Boundaries’ will feature a wonderful mix of string orchestra works including pieces that were inspired by traditional musical styles of the past but composed in a more modern and fresh way. We want to perform string orchestra pieces that create new connections among composers, musicians, and audiences through the concert hall.”
Bridges is honored and excited to perform the premier of Stellar Nebulae by California composer Brian Belet, which was composed especially for Bridges. “Performing a brand new work hot off the press is always exciting for the performers and the audience,” states Pat.
The concert will also include music by Respighi, Jenkins, Hovhaness, Corigliano and Tchaikovsky.
Donations will be gladly accepted at the door. Proceeds will benefit the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra.
