Channing Yu, Music Director
Charles Villiers Stanford Phaudrig
Crohoore, Op. 62 (An Irish Ballad)
Amy Beach Symphony in E minor, Op. 32 "Gaelic"
National winner of the 2010 American Prize for Orchestral Performance in the community orchestra division, Mercury Orchestra performs great works in the symphonic repertoire. Under Music Director Channing Yu, the Mercury Orchestra performs two rarely heard orchestral works: Charles Villiers Stanford's Phaudrig Crohoore (An Irish Ballad) with chorus, and Amy Beach’s "Gaelic" Symphony in E minor. Beach’s work was the first symphony composed and published by a female American composer, and it premiered in Boston in October 1896. Both works make a connection with Boston’s storied Irish heritage.
If it rains, this concert will be cancelled.
