Can you hear the birds chirping? We’re introducing a new series of streamed performances, curated by Horn Fellow Scott Leger and paired with an interactive online concert museum, that allows the audience to engage with music and sounds featured on the program. Part I will feature music that is inspired by birds.
Scott Leger is a second-year Horn Fellow at the New World Symphony. Mr. Leger is an active arranger and composer of music for horn, wind quintet and other instrumentations, with the explicit goal of finding compositional genres and styles that have eluded these ensembles and finding a way to make this music adaptable, in hopes to enhance both the repertoire of the ensemble and to also breathe new life into the music.
The New World Symphony, America’s Orchestral Academy (NWS), prepares graduates of music programs for leadership roles in professional orchestras and ensembles. In the 33 years since its co-founding by Artistic Director Michael Tilson Thomas and Lin and Ted Arison, NWS has helped launch the careers of more than 1,150 alumni worldwide. #NewWorldSymphony IG: @nwsymphony TW: @NWSymphony
