David Del Tredici’s monumental orchestral work Child Alice imagines “chapters from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland that got away” with text from the preface poems to Alice and Through the Looking Glass set for amplified soprano. Fall down the rabbit hole with a rare complete performance on March 25th.

Featuring the crystalline voices of celebrated vocalists and Boston's own Lorelei Ensemble, Kati Agócs draws on a multicultural spiritual heritage in five works that weave together tradition, poetry, and devotion in unique and often ravishingly beautiful musical tapestries.

Orchestral composer, DJ, curator...Mason Bates has no need of a day/night split personality: he combines traditional virtuosity and symphonic color with techno beats, electronica, and improvisation in his orchestral works. Mothership features five compositions, ranging in inspiration from oceanic depths to Pima Indian chant to a hybrid technological art of the future. Not to be missed!

It's an orchestra! No, it's a video game! With bows speeding faster than the eye can follow and discrepancies between classical tradition and modern society overcome in a single bound...it's Play, rumored to be in the running for the best orchestral work written so far this century. On our very own BMOP/sound!

Gil Rose, conductor

In 1996, Gil Rose set out to restore a widening disconnect between contemporary audiences and contemporary music. Today BMOP remains dedicated to its mission and is the leading orchestra for commissioning, performing, and recording modern orchestral music.
