NCCO Season Announcement

Last, but not least, New Century Chamber Orchestra announces its 2013-14 season.

The most interesting program, from my perspective, is the February program, which includes Donizetti's one-act opera Rita, though the first half of the program is string arrangements of various non-Wagnerian bleeding chunks. Curious how the Salome Dance of the Seven Veils will sound with a small string orchestra.

The featured composer this year is Michael Daugherty, a popular, easy-listening, blandish, competent composer. The first program is all Daugherty except for Josef Suk's Serenade, Op. 6.  Clarice Assad's Dreamscape makes its return, on a program that includes the premier of a new violin concerto by Daugherty. There's a concert with Chanticleer, repertoire TBA. Well, there's work by a female composer on the season.

Full details after the cut. Update: Fixed the dates, because all of the 2013-14 season concerts are not in 2013. :) (The detailed listing was correct, just not the headers, for the 2014 programs.)

The dates are directly from NCCO's press release - I'm sure you can see where the typos are.

LOL, it depends on how I'm feeling from day to day, and also whether real harm will be done. But I'll fix the dates now. :)
