Kelly Corcoran leads an evening of music inspired by interpersonal connections between us all, opening with Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, dedicated to friends of the composer lost in World War I. Coincident Dances by Jessie Montgomery is inspired by sounds found in New York’s neighborhoods with “the orchestra taking on the role of a DJ of a multicultural dance track.” Honoring the tireless frontline workers of the COVID-19 pandemic, Valerie Coleman’s Seven O’Clock Shout remembers the heartwarming serenades and cheers that broke through the imposed isolation. Edward Elgar presents sketches of his friends through each of his Enigma Variations.
