holiday interlude a big hit at The Klein

GBS' december 16 concert featured allison eldredge and other holiday surprises.

Season's Greetings.jpg

Holiday Interlude mixed exquisite Tchaikovsky with holiday singalongs, featured great young talent, and sent the audience home floating on the cold winter air.  Eric Jacobsen charmed the crowd of over 1100, and welcomed the fabulous cellist Allison Eldredge to the stage at The Klein, along with prodigies Zoe Lonsinger (violin) and Hudson Ragins (piano).  Bridgeport's own chanteuse Maureen Hamill joined in the fun, bringing friends and 17 youth singers from the After School at The Klein (ASK) program along to lead the singalongs.

"This is the best holiday concert I've been to in years!" said many concertgoers. Jacobsen blended Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 and excerpts from The Nutcracker with Strauss' Tales from the Vienna Woods and such seasonal favorites as O Holy Night, Hanukkah Night, Hark The Herald Angels Sing, Silent Night and Joy to the World.  A highlight of the night came at the top of the second half, when Allison Eldredge on cello led her students Lonsinger and Ragins in a masterful trio version of Waltz of the Flowers, joined by the entire 53-piece GBS orchestra for the finale; the ovation lasted several minutes.

"This is my favorite time of year!" said Jacobsen from the stage.  It showed!

revolutions and revelations continues on march 3!

With the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution coming up in October, we got to thinking:  despite all the tragedies launched by the Russian Revolution, great music did emerge from Russia -- some in protest, some in propaganda, and some in triumphant escape.  We open on September 16 with a musical overview of the Russian Revolution -- before and after:  the music of Glinka, Paert, Rachmaninoff and Shostakovich.  Later in the season we'll hear the effects of the Spanish Civil War, the French Revolution, and the American Revolution!  Don't miss a single concert!   The Russian, French, and American Revolutions, along with the Spanish Civil War, anchor our season.  Click here to find out more!     The PERFECT gift idea:  GBS TICKETS! Give the gift of music this year, with tickets to any of our upcoming concerts. Call GBS to order your gift package today, complete with a gift letter in a festive envelope. Family Pack Tickets available!  A family of five can attend a concert for as little as $55.50!  Click the 2017-18 Season tab, or call our office at (203)576-0263.   Offer available only by calling GBS.
