Season Opening: Let There Be Light!
VIVIAN FUNG: Harp Concerto
GUSTAV MAHLER: Symphony No. 5
Conductor: Yaniv Dinur
Guest Artist: Bridget Kibbey, Harp

Described as the “Yo Yo Ma of the harp,” Bridget Kibbey opens the NBSO’s new season with Vivian Fung’s Harp Concerto – a piece that takes the instrument’s capabilities to the extreme, making it sound at times like a zither as well as a bass guitar. The NBSO follows with its full forces, performing Mahler’s monumental Fifth Symphony – a journey that begins with a dark funeral march and ends with a thousand-sun explosion of the joy of being alive.
Tickets $30-$65, students always $10
