Palaver Strings – Freefall

Saturday, Aug 19, 2017, 6:00pm

Pascal Hall, Rockport


A musical evocation of two ideas inspired by this accomplished string ensemble’s shared experience of watching a meteor shower in Maine last August. "As we watched what appeared to be random astronomical explosions in the sky, we recognized our own story in this experience – the story of stepping off into the unknown, taking a risk and making up the journey as we go along. As a young group interested in bringing classical music to nontraditional spaces, the path to success is not always clear – sometimes we like it that way. "
