Prepare your ears to be dazzled by the light and dark—chiaroscuro—transfigure that is Brahms and Berlioz featuring Cecelia Hall presented by The Landis Theater. This esteemed concert of optimal contrast will include a performance of music from German composer Johannes Brahms and French composer Louis-Hector Berlioz by The Bay Atlantic Symphony. Director, Jed Gaylin, will lead The Bay Atlantic Symphony with the addition of vocals by Cecelia Hall.
The Bay Atlantic Symphony performs symphonic and chamber concerts throughout southern New Jersey. Founded in 1983 as the Bridgeton Symphony, the orchestra now has been acknowledged for its world-class performers, diverse programs and outstanding community services. They have combined their music with Cecelia Hall’s richly-hued voice to create a one of a kind concert experience.
Hall is one of the most established young mezzo-soprano vocalists of our time. She will be singing Berlioz’s Les Nuits d’été, Op.7 (Summer Nights). Her majestic vocals will bring the series of six poems written by French poet, Théophile Gautier, to life. The poems were originally framed to music by Berlioz between 1843 and 1856. At first, the poems went unacknowledged; however, by the 1900s, Summer Nights became one of his most famous works.
