Music & Folklore concert at Concert Conservatory of Music

October 27 @ 7:30 PM

Imagine listening to a musical performance that transports you to a different time and place, where you can experience the stories and emotions of people from various cultures and traditions.  Join the Concord Conservatory of Music (CCM), along with the Concord Museum, for Music & Folklore concert and lecture on Friday, October 27th at 7:30 pm. Together, we will celebrate the oral folk traditions of various cultures through music. This event will take place at CCM at 1317 Main Street in West Concord.

Folklore is a way of preserving and transmitting the stories, wisdom, and values of distinct cultures across time. Hear musical tales that reveal the similarities and differences between diverse societies and appreciate the richness and variety of our cultural heritage. Our guest speaker will be Frank Korom, Professor of Religion and Anthropology at Boston University and Associate of Folklore and Mythology at Harvard College. His expertise, research, and teaching interests range from South Asian expressive traditions and contemporary religion to diaspora studies and transnationalism.

By combining chamber music and folktales, composers can create works that are rich in narrative, character, and atmosphere. Experience how the works of Schubert, Copland, Bartok, Esmail, Mussorgsky, and others bring to life the spirit and the magic of these narratives, connecting us with our shared roots. This chamber music concert will feature CCM faculty artists soprano Rose Hegele, violinist Angel Valchinov, and pianist Yoko Hagino.
