The Atlantic Chamber Ensemble will be presenting a world premiere by Richmond-born composer Mason Bates this Saturday evening at 8:00 p.m. in the Richmond Music Hall (623 E. Main Street). The new work, commissioned by the ensemble, is titled “Rags and Hymns of River City.” This piece is written for a nonet of strings and winds, along with electronics that will be played by Mason Bates! The rest of the program features works by Joyce, Harbison and Frank.

Bassoonist Thomas Schneider and violinist Alana Pritchard Carithers came by to discuss this exciting project with me. I hope you enjoy our chat and can make it out to this weekend’s concert!

Yours in good music,
Mike Goldberg Classical Music Host, 93.1 and 107.3 WCVE Music
