ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Named after a Robert Frost poem, the bright and brilliant star - seemingly out of reach, yet just within grasp - is the beacon of light guiding the music featured in this concert. A person, place, dream, or literal star serves as a fixed point to which we project our imagination, ideals, and feeling of home.

Featuring two world premieres, VOYAGER written by Matthew Brown and Alas de noche by Diana Syrse, along with extrodinary pieces from classic Brahms to contemporary Runestad, this program is about what inspires us and to what we aspire.
