We’ll be performing a new work by our esteemed colleague Francine Trester in the coming months.
Here’s how Fran describes it:“A View from Heartbreak Hill, a cycle of six songs whose themes stem from the events of last year’s Boston Marathon attack. The songs, scored for contralto, viola, and piano are reflections on the tragedy, a memorial to the victims, and an offering of hope. “I wrote the words and music to the cycle – more of my work can be found at: www.francinetrester.com. The performers are the Mockingbird Trio
along with pianist Lois Shapiro and violist Melissa Howe I think we have an interesting story to tell. And we will be presenting it through three performances this year:
- Berklee College of Music on Thursday February 20 (7:30 pm),
- Newton Free Library on Sunday March 2 (2:00 pm), and
- Harvard Business School on Thursday April 10 (6:00 pm–private concert, limited availability for guests)
All performances are free.
The March 2 event at the Newton Free Library will be a full concert by The Mockingbird Trio.
More news to come about this special cycle and its premiere.
