Richman and the DSQ on Zoom

Fri, 07/17/2020 - 8:15am

    Join the conversation! Lucas Richman - conductor, composer, music director for Bangor Symphony, and the DaPonte String Quartet talk about life and music during a Happy Hour conversation at 5 p.m. Friday, July 24 on Zoom. This Happy Hour will also feature a recorded excerpt from the Arlan Baillie Steinway Series, performed in February 2020.

    Grammy award-winning conductor Lucas Richman has served as music director for the Bangor Symphony Orchestra since 2010 and held the position as music director for the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra from 2003-2015. Richman earns rave reviews for his artful collaborations with artists in both the classical and commercial music arenas. He has appeared as guest conductor with numerous orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, Boston Pops, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Baltimore Symphony, Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra and Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Russian National Orchestra, the Oslo Philharmonic, and numerous others.

    Join DSQ for all the weekly offerings online: On Wednesday evenings at 7 we post digital content on the Quartet’s YouTube channel - and they are available for live chat. Sometimes a member of the Quartet will post a short film highlighting a piece that they are working on, or playing a piece they have longed to revisit. Some weeks will highlight filmed excerpts from a past concert.

    Join us for Happy Hour Fridays! Every Friday at 5 p.m. we gather together (virtually) to chat about music, listen to each other’s plans, or discuss upcoming events. We often welcome special guests to our Happy Hour discussion. It could be an old friend, or a special guest artist who is working with us to reschedule 2020. Maybe a blast from the past or a sneak peek of the future! Don’t miss it - make sure you are on our email list to get info about these Zoom Happy Hours.
