Maine-based musician-led ensemble, Palaver Strings, will perform at One Longfellow Square on Saturday, May 30 2020 as part of a five state East Coast Tour, titled On the Nature of Daylight.
The program explores the impact of daylight in the approach to the summer solstice and includes the lush soundscapes of Elgar’s Serenade for Strings, M ax Richter's introspective On the Nature of Daylight and Boccherini’s L a Musica Noturna della Strada di Madrid. The program is anchored by Mendelssohn’s radiant O ctet for Strings, which with its youthful brilliance, captures the pure joy of long summer days.
Now on the heels of its sixth season, Palaver Strings has established itself as a forward-thinking ensemble whose mission is rooted in community and creative programming. Palaver has performed at the Kennedy Center, a celebration of the Lullaby Project at Carnegie Hall, and has toured the East and West Coasts of the United States. Palaver was Ensemble in Residence at the Boston Center for the Arts from 2017-2019, and continues a longstanding residency at Bay Chamber Concerts in Rockport, ME. This season, Palaver was a resident ensemble at the Shalin Liu Center in Rockport, MA. Equally passionate about education, Palaver has recently launched the Palaver Music Center in Portland, ME, fostering creativity and dialogue and making high-quality music education accessible to students of all backgrounds.
