Brazilian composer, pianist and vocalist Clarice Assad creates a joyful collaboration with neighborhood ensembles in music inspired by folk dance, storytelling and memories of childhood. Sheherazade, the vibrant symphonic poem based on One Thousand and One Nights, is the well-loved creation of Rimsky-Korsakov who, as a Russian naval officer, once set anchor in Rio de Janeiro. Rain date: August 13 at Hatch Shell
Thanks in part to a grant from The League of American Orchestras and New Music USA, Clarice Assad will be in Boston for residencies with the Landmarks Orchestra in July and August. She will lead workshops at Camp Harbor View, Grooversity, and ZUMIX. Young performers from these groups will participate in this concert.
