Island symphony benefit is ‘Breaking Boundaries’

Bridges, a string orchestra, will present “Breaking Boundaries” on Friday, Nov. 1 at Bainbridge Performing Arts, a benefit performance for the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra.

Violinist and founder Pat Strange leads the 12-member conductor-less ensemble made up of musicians from Bainbridge Island.

Following their successful debut concert last fall, Bridges will again bring exciting and innovative string orchestra music to the community.

“Our November concert, ‘Breaking Boundaries’ will feature a wonderful mix of string orchestra works including pieces that were inspired by traditional musical styles of the past but composed in a more modern and fresh way,” Strange said. “We want to perform string orchestra pieces that create new connections among composers, musicians, and audiences through the concert hall.”

Bridges is honored and excited to perform the premier of “Stellar Nebulae” by California composer Brian Belet, which was composed especially for Bridges.

“Performing a brand-new work hot off the press is always exciting for the performers and the audience,” said Strange.

The concert will also include music by Respighi, Jenkins, Hovhaness, Corigliano, and Tchaikovsky. Admission is by donation and proceeds will benefit BSO.
