MELISSA ETHERIDGE – MERRY CHRISTMAS, BABY
Dec 2 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Melissa Etheridge is one of rock music’s great female icons. Her critically acclaimed eponymous debut album was certified double platinum. Etheridge’s popularity built around such memorable songs as “Bring Me Some Water,” “No Souvenirs” and “Ain’t It Heavy” for which she won her first Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am, featuring the massive hits “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought her a second Grammy. The six times platinum album spent more than two and a half years on the album chart. Etheridge is also an Oscar winner for Best Original Song in 2007. In 2011 Melissa made her Broadway debut as St. Jimmy in Green Day’s rock opera, American Idiot, where she replaced Billie Joe Armstrong for one week, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In fall of 2016, Etheridge released MEmphis Rock & Soul, her first album since 2014. Recorded at Royal Studios in Memphis, the album features original material as well as interpretations of classic songs from the legendary Stax catalog.

For these special holiday shows, Melissa will be performing songs from her 2008 holiday album, A New Thought For Christmas. Songs will include fan favorites and holiday classics such as “Merry Christmas Baby,” Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” “O Night Divine” and more.

Longy Celebrates Bernstein’s Centennial: This Will Be Our Reply
Dec 8 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

We, too, may be living in W. H. Auden’s “Age of Anxiety.” This concert, featuring the Longy Conservatory Orchestra, Sean Wang, conductor, faculty pianist Spencer Myer, and members of Longy’s Sistema Side by Side Chorus and Orchestra, will include the composer’s rarely-heard “The Age of Anxiety,” along with selections from his “Mass” and “West Side Story.” Each of these pieces are a testament to Bernstein’s belief that, as a reply to violence we will “…make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.”

Admission is free, but tickets are required.

New England Philharmonic presents ‘The Usual Orchestral Suspects’ – Annual Family Concert
Dec 10 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

There’s dreadful news from the symphony hall—the composer is dead! Join the NEP when they take on Lemony Snicket’s ‘The Composer is Dead.’ If you have ever heard an orchestra play, then you know that musicians are most certainly guilty of something. Where exactly were the violins on the night in question? Did anyone see the harp? Is the trumpet protesting a bit too boisterously? In this perplexing murder mystery, everyone seems to have a motive, everyone has an alibi, and nearly everyone is a musical instrument. But the composer is still dead. Perhaps you can solve the crime yourself. Join the Inspector as he interrogates all the unusual suspects. Then listen to the accompanying audio recording featuring Lemony Snicket and the music of Nathaniel Stookey performed by the San Francisco Symphony. Hear for yourself exactly what took place on that fateful, well-orchestrated afternoon.
