A Special Evening
This concert is not just the opening night of the Landmarks Festival at the
Shell, but it is also the third in a series of Reconciliation Concerts
which celebrate the universal healing power of music. These concerts were begun by
Landmarks Orchestra founder Charles Ansbacher and his friend Tuan Nguyen.
In memory of the first concert of this series, which took place in
2010 in Hanoi with Maestro Ansbacher conducting, the first Charles
Ansbacher MUSIC FOR ALL AWARD will be presented. The inaugural recipient
is Armand Diangienda, founder and conductor of the Orchestra Symphonique Kimbanguista in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Our soloist this evening is Boston's well known and well loved Robert Honeysucker who has performed with the orchestra for many years. Ms. Holly Krafka is serving as choir conductor this evening. Holly is music director of the New World Chorale and has worked with the orchestra often. We are honored they are joining us this evening.
The simple beauty of Copland's classic scores has defined American music for generations. The Old American songs include well known tunes like All the Pretty Horses, I Bought Me a Cat, and the Shaker melody Simple Gifts, which also appears at the conclusion of Appalachian Spring. Robert Honeysucker and a chorus drawn from throughout the Boston area help fulfill the vision of Dr. Hubie Jones - and the Landmarks Orchestra - that we can be "one city through arts and culture."
