Boston Symphony Orchestra Community Concerts bring music up close and personal

The program’s distinct combination of classical and folk music reaches everyone in the audience, regardless of musical background.  From Piazzolla’s “Tango Ballet,” arranged for string quintet, to traditional sets of Irish reels and jigs, all of the pieces show the classical musicians’ range and great interpretation of both genres.

As a BSO musician, Bewick is classically-trained; she also plays folk music with the group, Childsplay and is a member of the trio,Frame, alongside her brother and Wolfe. From her experience in both classical and folk, the pieces in the Community Concert formed nicely as the primes examples in both types of music. “I really like the element of surprise [when] an audience expects to hear a lot of classical music,” she says, “That’s always refreshing and fun for me when I present a crossover program to an audience.”

“Bach Reels in his Grave,” arranged by Bonnie Bewick and champion Irish fiddler, Sheila Falls, combines a Bach violin partita with Irish reels. It was certainly fitting that they performed this piece under the watchful eyes of a bust of J.S. Bach on the magnificent carved pipe organ in the Hall. Bewick and Jojatu play the parts with deftness and high musicianship, showing the similarities between both genres of music as they seamlessly blend together.
