We are beyond excited to perform the US Premiere of Dan Brown's "Wild Symphony" !
On November 15, 2020, the Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra will perform Brown’s classical debut for the young at heart as a special benefit presented by the author himself. Proceeds from ticket sales go to The Music Hall and the Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra, both 501(c)3 non-profit arts organizations from Brown’s hometown.
“The Music Hall has been the site of similar premiere events for my movies,” says the author, “and I thought it would be fun to premiere this new musical project in the U.S. as a benefit for my local community.”
Wild Symphony, Brown’s first work for orchestra, features twenty-one musical portraits drawn from the animal kingdom. From the joyous rhythms of “Bouncing Kangaroo” to the mysterious melodies of “Wondrous Whale” to the hair-raising harmonies of “Brilliant Bat,” Wild Symphony is a very wild symphony indeed.
“My hope for Wild Symphony is to provide a fun, fresh opportunity for families, parents, children, and people of all ages to reconnect with the magical experience of classical music both in the concert hall and in the home,” Brown says. “I hope audiences have as much fun listening as I had composing.”
No upcoming events. Check back soon!
