music interview

During the pandemic, the Stamford Symphony Orchestra created an imaginative season of concerts that featured soloists as well as sections of the orchestra. Their season wraps up on Saturday, May 8, with a live streamed performance! Kate Remington talks with Music Director and conductor Michael Stern about how this live finale for the season came together.

This past season has been unusual for many performing ensembles, including the Greater Connecticut Youth Orchestras, which chose not one, but two winners of its concerto competition. Kate talks with the two winners: Henry Friedman, french horn, and Jack Campbell, cello, and the Music Director of the GCTYO, Christopher Hisey.

On Sunday, April 11, the Fairfield County Chorale presents a unique performance of Vivaldi's exhuberant Gloria. 

Kate Remington talks with the FCC's Music Director David Rosenmeyer about what makes this streamed performance special, and how he pulled off the technical complexities.

You're invited to come along as the Stamford Symphony presents a spcial on-line premier, Venetian Holiday, featuring music by Vivaldi and Gabrieli performed by members of the orchestra. 

Kate Remington talks with Music Director Michael Stern about this unique event.
