  • Through the Looking Glass - A concert by Grand Harmonie

    Dec 3, 2015, 8pm EST

    Grand Harmonie, Boston's groundbreaking period-instrument ensemble, presents a program of German Romantic music in unusual chamber settings. Wagner's Siegfried Idyll and Brahms's Serenade no. 1 are staples of the orchestral repertoire, but both began life as chamber works: the Idyll as a surprise birthday present to Wagner's second wife Cosima, and the Brahms Serenade as a nonet for winds and strings. Rarely heard on historical instruments, these works highlight the masterful tone colors wielded by the two titans of opposing schools of Romanticism. This performance will premiere a new reconstruction of the Brahms Serenade no. 1 by Grand Harmonie members Yoni Kahn and Thomas Carroll. A set of French dances for winds by German composer Heinrich Scherrer and a period arrangement for string quintet of Brahms's Liebeslieder waltzes round out the program.

  • Tufts Drama Presents NEXT TO NORMAL

    Feb 18, 2016, 8pm EST

    Music by Tom Kitt
    Book & Lyrics by Brian Yorkey
    Directed by Noe Montez

    “Much more than a feel-good musical: it is a feel everything musical”

    The New York Times
    Diana Goodman has a seemingly-perfect suburban life complete with a loving husband, son, and daughter. While the family appears to be the typical American family on the surface, their lives are anything but normal as they cope with the effects of bipolar disorder. Next to Normal is a modern rock musical about the devastating toll of psychiatric disorders and the decisions a family makes to keep their world intact. Winner of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in Drama and three Tony Awards, Next to Normal is a groundbreaking American masterpiece that explores the psychology of grief, ethics in modern psychiatry, and the shared joys and heartaches of family life.
