Concerts & Tickets - Saturday, 28 April 2018

Garde Arts Center
New London, Connecticut
Saturday, 28 April 2018 - 8:00 PM
The ECSO gathers all of the artistic forces in our community for a joyous celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th anniversary with a concert performance of his Broadway work Candide. Bernstein himself was quoted as saying “there’s more of me in that piece than anything else I’ve done.” Technically a comic operetta, Candide depicts Voltaire’s satirical novel of the same name. Opposing philosophies and ideologies are sung and beautifully orchestrated through two acts of entertaining music. Soloists provided from Yale Opera will deliver the humorous libretto with energy and pluck. This fitting season finale will pay brilliant homage to one of Music Director and Conductor Toshiyuki Shimada’s greatest mentors.

Tickets range from $28 - $62, with $12 tickets available for active/retired military members and anyone under 30, sponsored by General Dynamics Electric Boat.
Presenters: Eastern Connecticut Symphony Chorus; Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra; Yale Opera
Bernstein: Candide
