  • The Lark Ascending – Ralph Vaughan Williams, Kennett Symphony Instrumental Competition Winner Kristy Chen, violin

Enjoy a beautiful summer evening outdoors. The Lark Ascending is a piece that is indebted to English folk music which portrays nostalgia for a simpler time; joining us
will be our Instrumental Competition winner Kristy Chen, currently a student at the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music. The Planets was inspired by the astrological significance of the planets and is the perfect piece to hear under a night sky. We close with John William’s legendary score for Star Wars, an instantly recognizable work that hearkens back to old Hollywood film scores.
