The Australian Chamber Orchestra with Dawn Upshaw, Soprano

Richard Tognetti, artistic director and conductor

Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.
Carpenter Theatre, Richmond CenterStage

“The energy and vibe of a rock band with the ability of a crack classical chamber group.” 
Washington Post

“Richard Tognetti and his badass classical band, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, don’t play New York nearly often enough. But, on the rare occasion that they do come in from Down Under, they leave an indelible mark on the city’s music scene.”  — Time Out New York  

The first vocal artist to win a MacArthur “genius” grant for her role as an advocate for new music, Dawn Upshaw has achieved worldwide celebrity as a singer of opera and concert repertoire. She is joined by the internationally renowned Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO), known for its inspired programming and the rapturous response of audiences and critics.  A product of Australia’s vibrant, adventurous, and inquiring spirit, the ACO moves hearts and stimulates minds with repertoire spanning six centuries and a vitality and virtuosity unmatched by other ensembles. The evening’s program will include Shostakovich’s Polka and Elegy; Maria Schneider’s Winter Morning Walks (with Dawn Upshaw, soprano); Grieg’s String Quartet no. 1, arranged for strings by Richard Tognetti; and additional pieces to be announced later.  

This performance will take place at Richmond CenterStage – Carpenter Theatre.
An additional $2 per ticket restoration fee will be added for all Carpenter Theatre events.
