HK Gruber makes his anticipated return to New World Symphony in a triple threat performance as conductor, composer and singer. Travel back to the roaring ‘20s in Kurt Weill’s jazzy “Berlin in the Light” and a suite from his famous political satire The Threepenny Opera. Be the first on U.S. soil to hear Weill’s suite from Magic Night and Gruber’s own Northwind Pictures, a symphonic poem that pits nature against humanity using wind machines and music boxes. The magic of towering redwoods and shimmering light was the inspiration for Julia Adolphe’s ethereal Underneath the Sheen, in which she explores a lost home. Age Appropriateness 8 and above.
