This is a Groupmuse Night Out

Explore the wider world of music outside Groupmuse with exclusive discounts to local concerts.


Don't miss the third and final Night Out partnership with New Century Chamber Orchestra this season! This concert will be one for the books, featuring a program of potent 20th century American works for strings that speak to our collective emotions.

Coping with the senselessness of war is the heartbeat of the program’s first half, with composer Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson confronting his concerns about the Korean War through his work Grass. In contrast, composer David Diamond wrote his exuberant work Rounds to dispel the gloomy wartime mood of the 1940s in vivid fashion. The program closes with Leonard Bernstein’s Serenade (after Plato’s Symposium), an epic work for solo violin, strings and percussion inspired by the ancient Greek debate over love in its many forms.

Pianist Awadagin Pratt will join Daniel Hope and New Century for this unique concert you will not want to miss!

We've got these seats a 50% discount for only $15 (and less for Supermusers). Purchase them in a three-concert bundle for even bigger discounts to these fabulous concerts.

Children over age 6 are welcomed. Groupmuse ticket buyers are instructed to pick up their tickets at Will Call immediately before the performance.
