Livestreamed on Bay Chamber Concerts' YouTube Channel

Maine Public is pleased to be a media sponsor of Bay Chamber Concerts' presentation of the Jupiter String Quartet performing a livestreamed concert on Thursday, August 6, at 7:30 pm. Along with Beethoven’s masterful and transcendent late quartet, Opus 132, the evening's program will feature the World Premiere of a new work commissioned by Bay Chamber Concerts to honor their 60th anniversary. Composer Michi Wiancko’s dynamic and virtuosic "To Unpathed Waters, Undreamed Shores" (from Shakespeare’s A Winter Tale) is a celebration of the beauty and vitality of the natural world and explores ideas of regeneration, resilience, and hope. The audience will travel through deserts, forests, along coastlines and glaciers, visiting grand landscapes and experiencing sonic interpretations of weather events influenced by climate change.
