MÉLISSE BRUNET, Music Director

The 2022 - 2023 Season finale concert, Bloom, marks the arrival of spring with works representative of the beauty of color and the renewal of the earth. This concert, at the Singletary Center for the Arts, includes works celebrating the flourishing beauty of color including Anna Clyne’s Color Field and Robert Schumann’s joyous Symphony No. 1 “Spring.” Guest percussion quartet, Sandbox Percussion, joins the orchestra for Viet Cuong’s Re(new)al, a concerto for percussion quartet and orchestra, inspired by renewable energy sources such as wind, hydro and solar. The piece utilizes found objects, such as compressed air cans and crystal glasses, to create a visually and aurally stimulating landscape of choreography. Julia Perry’s Homunculus C.F. features Sandbox Percussion alongside LexPhil percussionists, harpist, and celeste player in an “unfolding” of musical material inspired by her father’s medical practice in Akron, OH.
