Ward: Jubilation Overture

Mason Bates: Rusty Air in Carolina
Sarah Kirkland Snider: Hiraeth

One of four orchestras invited for the inaugural SHIFT Festival in Washington, D.C., celebrating “vitality, identity, and extraordinary artistry” in American orchestras, the North Carolina Symphony presents a preview of our concert program.

Patrons who would like to hear the program in the main Concert Hall of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts can find more information here.

The pieces to be performed include a new work by Sarah Kirkland Snider that had its world premiere with the North Carolina Symphony in September, 2015.  Other composers whose work the Symphony will perform include Mason Bates, Caroline Shaw, and Robert Ward – all composers with strong ties to North Carolina, which is a hallmark of the orchestra since its founding in 1932.

The festival, which is a collaboration between the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and Washington Performing Arts, is designed to bring national attention to the work of each organization chosen, not only for their artistic excellence but for their relationships with their communities.  The residency program will incorporate full orchestral and smaller ensemble performances, and other events at the Kennedy Center and in smaller venues and schools throughout the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, reflecting each orchestra’s unique identity and strengths on a national platform.
