Narragansett Bay Symphony Community Orchestra


Join the Narragansett Bay Symphony Community Orchestra, Rhode Island’s premier community orchestra as we present our spring concert, on Sunday, April 28, 2024 at 3:00 pm in the auditorium of East Providence High School, 2000 Pawtucket Avenue, East Providence, RI.

The concert begins with the performance of two choral tone poems by Johannes Brahms, ‘Schicksalslied’, Op. 54 and ‘Nänie’, Op. 82, featuring Coro Amante with the CCRI Chorus directed by Dr. Joseph Amante y Zapata and Krista Wilhelmsen. ‘Schicksalslied’ is also known as the Song of Destiny. ‘Nänie’ depicts the Greek myths of Orpheus and Eurydice, Aphrodite and Adonis, and Thetis and Achilles. Both works set the poems against lush harmonies that interplay between the orchestra and chorus.

NaBSCO, with our Interim Music Director John Eells, will then perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67, also known as the ‘Fate Symphony’. Considered one of the most influential works in classical music, it is easily recognized by its opening four note motif symbolizing fate.

Admission is ‘Pay what you think is fair.’ Please help to support the RI Community Food Bank by bringing a non-perishable food item.
