The Philadelphia Orchestra: New Worlds

July 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$29 – $90

Highlighting the program on Thursday, July 28 is the East Coast SPAC Premiere of Contact by Pulitzer Prize-winner Kevin Puts featuring Time for Three. The new work was co-commissioned by SPAC and draws inspiration from Time for Three’s extraordinary energy and spontaneity as a boundary-breaking ensemble. The work was originally planned as part of SPAC’s 2020 season.
According to Puts, he “collaborated perhaps more closely than ever before in his career to create music tailored to the group’s unique style of performance–one which combines dazzling virtuosity, spontaneity, singing, all manner of string techniques and an infectious joy for music itself that remains with the audience long after the last note sounds.”
Earning praise from NPR, NBC, and The Wall Street Journal, Time for Three is renowned for their charismatic and energetic performances in venues including Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, and The Royal Albert Hall. They have collaborated with artists as diverse as Ben Folds, Branford Marsalis, and Joshua Bell, and have premiered original works by composers Chris Brubeck and Pulitzer Prize-winners Jennifer Higdon and William Bolcom.
Also featured is the SPAC premiere of Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres), which, in the composer’s words is “a piece that churns and roils, that inches close to the listener only to leap away at breakneck speed” and Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony, one of the most beloved works in the repertoire with its lush melodies and majestic conclusion.
