14, together with Britten’s Te Deum and holiday music.” In the second half, the NHSO will be featured on Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony with Boughton on the podium. Rosenmeyer said the two musical organizations have a great relationship that stems from a collaboration last December of Carl Orff ‘s enormously popular “Carmina Burana.” “The performance in Norwalk was electrifying, and I felt a very good connection with the musicians of the NHSO. It’s hard to put into words what feels like a good partnership. (But) with very limited rehearsal time, we managed to extract a lot from the piece and give a powerful and expressive performance,” Rosenmeyer said. “I am sure this will be similar, except with a completely different repertoire. This time we will have the energy of the Gloria, the sublime transcendence of the Ave Verum, the mercurial Credo with its operatic middle part and the always fun and humorous Haydn. And all this under 30 minutes,” he added. Rosenmeyer, who is in his ninth season with the Oratorio Society of New York , made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2007, leading the ensemble in Stravinsky’s Mass. A member of the conducting staff of Mannes College /The New School for Music , he also is the music director of the women’s chamber vocal ensemble Amuse, the Choral Arts Society and the University Singers at New York University . In addition, he is a conductor and vocal coach with the International Vocal Arts Institute in Tel Aviv. Born in Argentina, Rosenmeyer grew up in Israel, where he began his musical studies. After a time, he returned to Buenos Aires to study further, and then at Mannes College, where he received a master’s degree. The Fairfield-based FCC is celebrating its 51st season; with more than 100 members, the chorale’s repertoire ranges from the classics to commissioned works and world premieres. The New Haven Symphony Orchestra is America’s fourth oldest, giving its first concert in 1895.

Allen Estes Band to kick off the Larcom’s concert series in Beverly

Now the magic company, renamed White Horse Productions, is trying the sell the Cabot Street Cinema its currently listed at $1.35 million while finding new uses for the Larcom Theatre. So far Bull, who performed as Le Grand David in the magic show, has walked a few interested people through the Cabot Street Cinema, but he and his co-owners havent entered into serious discussions with anyone. He acknowledges that the theaters future will ultimately be in the hands of its new owner, but maintains, our hope is that the Cabot continues to function as a performing arts space of some kind. In the meantime, White Horse is focusing on developing the Larcoms offerings. The success of the Mardi Gras concert led the Bull and his partners to continue expanding the theaters offerings by scheduling the fall concert series. The Mardi Gras show on April 6 was an electric evening, and for many in the audience it was their first time inside the Larcom, he explains. Much of the theaters original decor is still in place, he says, and people were ohing and ahing about what a beautiful theater it is. Van Ness agrees that the Larcom is poised for a bright future. The Larcom Theatres elegant beautyand spectacular acoustics evoke a musical experience you just cant get anywhere else on Bostons North Shore. You no longer have to go into Boston for award-winning music in a gorgeous, comfortable theatre. He also points out that the theater is conveniently located on Wallis Street, just blocks from the large Chapman Street public parking lot that offers free parking after 5 p.m. Besides the Allen Estes Band, the Larcoms fall concert series will feature the Slide Brothers on Nov. 2 and Henry Smith on Dec. 14. Six off-Broadway shows will also be coming to the Larcom for runs between October and May. Tickets for the Allen Estes Band concert range between $19 and $39. They can be purchased at Casa De Moda on Cabot Street in Beverly or online at gimmelive.tv.
