Rupert Thompson's life story is a testament to the power of mentoring and the necessity of arts education in public schools. His belief in and advocacy of these ideas is compelling and urgent, grounded in his own history and lived every day through his work at the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music. You can come and meet Rupert and the other members of the Apple Hill String Quartet, at our concert on Sunday, April 24, at 7:00pm, at St. Paul's Church in Brookline.
Winsor Music is honored to present the world premiere of a personal, powerful new work by a young composer, Yi Yiing Chen. Her credentials are impressive, but her intellect, empathy, and openness shine her writing, both verbal and musical. We are so grateful that she has shared her story with us in her music and in this vivid and thoughtful interview.
We're less than a month away from our third concert of the season, and we'd like to introduce you to the pieces, performers and composers. Do you know how Haydn's "Miracle" Symphony got its nickname? Any guess as to who our newest young composer studies with? (Hint: it's an old friend!)
