A debut concert by Bridges, a String Orchestra
Performance: November 2, 2018
Friday @ 7:30 p.m.
Admission is by donation for this benefit for Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra.
Bridges, a newly-formed string orchestra, will perform its debut concert program, “New Beginnings,” on November 2 at Bainbridge Performing Arts beginning at 7:30 p.m. Violinist and founder Pat Strange leads the 13-member conductor-less ensemble made up of musicians from the Bainbridge Island community.
String orchestra music has been missing from Bainbridge Island’s classical music scene, and Bridges aims to fill the void. Pat Strange states: “We are excited by the string orchestra literature we are discovering and are eager to share our enthusiasm with our audiences. Bridge is about making new connections among composers, musicians, and audience members.”
“New Beginnings” will feature music by composers who differ in nationality, style, and time period, yet they are united in their love for the string orchestra sound. The composers include Janacek, Nielsen, Khachaturian, Part, Gardel, and Whitacre.
Proceeds will benefit the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra.
