Embark on a captivating musical odyssey as North Corner Chamber Orchestra’s winter solstice concert unfolds, presenting a harmonious fusion of masterpieces across eras. Johann Sebastian Bach’s exultant Jauchzet Gott in Allen Landen, BWV 51 opens the performance, its intricate Baroque tapestry weaving soprano splendor into the orchestral fabric, exuding devotion and jubilation. Transitioning seamlessly, Ellen T. Zwilich’s contemporary Concerto Grosso 1985 takes the stage, a vibrant interplay between soloists and ensemble, evoking a modernistic landscape through its intricate motifs and expressive contrasts. The journey crescendos with Igor Stravinsky’s Danses concertantes, where neoclassical rhythms entwine with avant-garde flair, offering a vivacious collage of dance-inspired motifs that bridge the past and present in a harmonious musical celebration.

About North Corner Chamber Orchestra (NOCCO)

NOCCO’s mission is to present immersive, collaborative, vibrant, and high-quality musical performances while removing barriers and enabling access to inclusive concert experiences. They believe that for too long, classical music has been confined by rigid rules and structures. NOCCO removes those barriers, connecting musicians and audiences through unconducted performances in intimate settings. They put collaboration at the heart of their music-making, resulting in vibrant, high-energy performances that are bursting with enthusiasm. Through fun and casual venues, diverse programming, and accommodating ticket pricing, NOCCO seeks to build a concert-going community that includes those new to, or even historically alienated from, orchestral music.
