Don’t miss this special virtual encore concert of the Tri-County Symphonic Band performing the premiere of Cape Cod composer Michael Donovan’s “Postcards from Buzzards Bay.” This and other evocative works about the sea by James Fulton, Francis McBeth, Robert Russell Bennett, Ralph Vaughn Williams, and John Philip Sousa—including a new piece by Rochester resident and composer John Wallace—are all the more compelling accompanied by images of Buzzards Bay, both vintage postcards and original fine art. Postcards from Buzzards Bay is a celebration of the body of water that shapes the lives of all who live and work in and around this wonder of nature. There will also be recorded interviews with composers Donovan and Wallace and a live Zoom question and answer session following the concert.
