Artistic Director Gemma Turvey leads NPCO core players Jeremy, Rosie and Karen and guest cellist Campbell Banks along with special guest vocalist Gorgi Coghlan in a colourful celebration of America’s 4th of July. With a distinct Boston and New England focus – the seat of the American Revolution– the evening will include movements from Gemma’s American Suite, her arrangement of Gershwin’s Lullaby for Strings, and music by NPCO favourite Eugene Friesen. Expect Appalachian, Bluegrass, Sondheim and some musical fireworks!

 

We look forward to seeing you at our favourite home away from home, for what promises to be a fantastic smorgasbord of great music!
