MANCHESTER NH, October 19, 2014 – The NH Philharmonic opens its 110th season with music inspired by Shakespeare’s plays.
Through the music of Prokofiev, Tchaikovsky, Walton and Mendelssohn, hear the tragedies of Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth, the whimsy of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and the nobility of Henry V.
Actors performing short scenes from the plays will introduce each piece.
Leading the orchestra is Music Director Mark Latham. He received his musical training at the Guildhall School (London), Philadelphia College of Performing Arts, Brooklyn College Conservatory, and the University of Michigan, where he is currently a candidate for Doctor of Musical Arts in Orchestral Conducting. He trained in violin and chamber music at Eastman, Juilliard, Aspen Music Festival and Banff Festival. A keen advocate of the music of our times, Latham has given numerous world premieres both as conductor and violinist.
The concert takes place on October 19, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. at the Palace Theatre Manchester. Tickets are available through the Palace box office at 603.668.5588. Complete information about the 110th season of the New Hampshire Philharmonic can be found at www.nhphil.org.
