FREE Community Concert Tonight

DBR works with young cellists at Davis Street!

Join us for an evening of old and new works by Bach, Bolcom, Fairouz, Mazzolli, Roumain, and New Haven’s next generation of student composers. NHSO Artist-in-Residence DBR and NHSO musicians have been hard at work all week at Davis Street Arts and Academics School and Fair Haven School juxtaposing hip hop and orchestral music. By focusing on multiple genres and techniques, students have begun composing their own works and to be presented at this week's community concerts:

Friday, April 5, 2013 ∙ 6:00pm
Fair Haven Community Concert
164 Grand Avenue, New Haven

For 20 days in March and April Haitian-American hip hop violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR), leads an Artist Residency with the NHSO! DBR and the NHSO musicians provide a link between students, teachers, parents, musicians, and our community in a celebration of musical diversity. Through in-school residencies, Young People’s Concerts, symphony concerts, community concerts, and workshops, DBR will educate and inspire. These innovative programs use hip hop and popular music as a gateway to teach music lovers of today that classical music is relevant and accessible. Learn more about DBR's Residency HERE.

The school Residencies are sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts; Wells Fargo Foundation; and Constance Bagley, in loving memory of her mother Joanne Snow-Willstadter, Professor Emerita of Art History at the University of Washington.

Community partners include New Haven Public Schools and Yale University School of Music.
