Livingston & Rachmaninoff

Experience the sublime fusion of contemporary and classical music as the Kingston Symphony presents a live performance featuring the works of John Estacio, Cecilia Livingston, and Sergei Rachmaninoff. This afternoon’s program is a celebration of the creative spirit, marking the live premiere of John Estacio’s “Domestic Divertimento”. Originally created and digitally premiered during the pandemic, this piece received international acclaim for its vibrant and engaging composition. Adding to the allure of the event is the premiere of Cecilia Livingston’s song cycle “Breath Alone”, a mesmerizing blend of music and literature based on the texts of renowned Canadian poet and novelist Anne Michaels. The talented soprano Rachel Krehm will lend her voice to this evocative piece, bringing the poetry to life with her emotive performance. The program concludes with Rachmaninoff’s luxuriant “Symphony No. 2”, a masterpiece of symphonic music that promises to be a feast for your ears. Under the skilled baton of conductor Evan Mitchell, this concert is not just a performance but an immersive experience in musical artistry. Join us for an unforgettable afternoon where each note tells a story and every melody captivates the soul.
