The New Bedford Symphony Orchestra kicks off the New Year in style with a program of Rachmaninoff and Stravinsky in “Kiss of the Earth” on Friday, January 5 at 7:30 pm at Zeiterion Performing Arts Center. Guest artist Inon Barnatan, Artist-in-Association of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, has been hailed by the New York Times as “one of the most admired pianists of his generation.” Barnatan will perform Rachmaninoff’s monumental Third Piano Concerto. The second half of the concert will feature Rachmaninoff’s contemporary – Igor Stravinsky – and his ever-rousing and scandalous Rite of Spring. Visit the NBSO website at www.nbsymphony.org to learn more about the program and our guest artist.
