Britt’s BFOnline streaming video series premieres in July and August
Published: July 10, 2020
MEDFORD, OR – The Britt Festival Orchestra goes online this July and August as we revisit some of our favorite performances from past summers with Music Director Teddy Abrams. BFOnline will feature five recordings, preceded by a discussion about the recorded work with Teddy, members of the BFO, and select guest artists and composers. Each recording will be accompanied by a visual element: either a score-follow video where you can read the score as the music plays, or a photo slideshow of the performance.
BFOnline premieres every Friday in July and August at 3:00 PM on our Facebook channel, starting on July 24. The series opens with Tchaikovsky’s ever-popular 1812 Overture from our 2016 season. You can catch the 2017 recording of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde on July 31, featuring Richard Cox and Tamara Mumford as soloists. On August 7, we’ll share Mason Bates’s Passage, a work for voice and orchestra featuring Sasha Cooke. The August 14 episode will feature Christopher Cerrone’s Meander Spiral Explode, a concerto for Third Coast Percussion and orchestra performed in 2019 at Britt. BFOnline closes as we revisit the Crater Lake Project from 2016 in Michael Gordon’s Natural History on August 21.
