Welcome to the inaugural concert of the Brattleboro Music Center’s EOS Project. The Brattleboro Music Center is launching the EOS (Educate. Open. Strengthen.) Project, as a direct response to questions about social justice as it pertains to the world of classical music and institutions such as the BMC. Developed and led by BMC faculty member Heather Sommerlad, EOS is envisioned as a collaborative effort of BMC Music School faculty and other local musicians to actively seek out and intentionally study and perform music by composers who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, as well as composers who identify as anything other than cis male. This inaugural concert includes the String Quartet in C minor, Op. 1, No. 4 by Chevalier de Saint-Georges, Joseph Bologne, Folksongs in Counterpoint by Florence Price, Molto Adagio (Lyric for Strings), from String Quartet No. 1 by George Walker, String Quartet No. 5, Rosa Parks by DBR (Daniel Bernard Roumain) and Strum by Jessie Montgomery. Performers include Kathy Andrew, Heather Sommerlad, Emily Packard, Moby Pearson, and Zon Eastes.
