Sounds of the Sea


Animal song and representations of sea life are woven together in a program conceived and presented in collaboration with the New England Aquarium. Debussy’s La Mer summons the mysterious power and psychological depths of wind and waves. Stella Sung’s seascape creates a watery dialogue between marine and human life. And Moby Dick rises again in the haunting music of Bernard Herrmann, Alfred Hitchcock’s most frequent musical collaborator. Rain Date: Thursday, August 16. If it rains on August 16 as well, the concert will be held at an indoor location TBA.
