NEC on Norway Pond - The Huntington Quartet.

Schubert's "Rosamunde" Quartet and portions of Bartok's Fourth String Quartet.

"Absolutely Marvelous" were the words of Benjamin Zander after listening to the Huntington Quartet's debut in Jordan Hall. Named after the street in Boston that brought these 4 musicians together, the Huntington Quartet is comprised of graduate students at the New England Conservatory who are passionately eager to share their music and give back to the community. Whether it be classical, baroque, and romantic masterpieces or new music by student composers, the quartet members hope their strong personal chemistry will enable them to explore and present this repertoire through bold, honest, and uninhibited interpretations.

The Concert Series - Signor Deluso

      Joseph Holmes

      Joseph Holmes

A hilarious one-act opera composed by Thomas Pasatieri, an exuberant, over-the-top farce, filled with overly emotional lovers constantly leaping to the wrong conclusions. Signor Deluso, accompanied by piano, has a cast of four singers, all from the Boston area. Soprano Rachele Schmiege and tenor Joseph Holmes play the young lovers and mezzo Christina English and baritone Jarvis Wyche are Signor and Signora Deluso.  Catherine Stornetta is music director and Patricia Maria Weinmann returns to Hancock as stage manager.

“..a comedy of layer upon layer of misunderstanding
