The Lost Chord: November 26 - Homebodies

Nov 26, 2017

With the lingering evidence of Thanksgiving both in our refrigerators and around our waistlines, it’s hardly surprising that our thoughts and memories would be full of home.  With that in mind, we’ll have music by American composers inspired by the idea of home, including Aaron Copland’s “Letter from Home” (1943-44) and John Fitz Rogers “Magna Mysteria” (2010).  Make yourself at home, this Sunday at 10 pm.

Join us Sunday night at 8PM for The Lyric Stage and Alexander Zemlinsky's complete one act,  A Florentine Tragedy.
