May 19: Musical Chairs “In the Direction of Dreams”

May 12, 2019

The Musical Chairs Chamber Ensemble will perform In the Direction of Dreams (clarinet, cello, piano) on Sunday, May 19.

In the Direction of Dreams commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the United States Wild & Scenic Rivers Act. The piece unfolds in three movements inspired by one of  Oliver’s favorite walks alongside Walden Pond, through Adams Woods, and down to Fairhaven Bay. This sojourn traverses the historic setting of Thoreau’s Life in the Woods, a landscape of idyllic swimming holes, pine forests, stone walls, and a shimmering river. This serenely beautiful landscape has continued to be a source of inspiration and reflection for generations of community members thanks to its protected status.

The program also includes music by Shostakovich, Fauré, Hilary Purrington and Andrew Sterman.
