Sunday, March 20, 2022 at 2:00pm

Artistic Director Emeritus, NWS alumna Rebekah Heller returns to New World Symphony to share works by today’s visionaries and yesterday’s trailblazers. From Hannah Kendall’s scenes of World War I to Ruth Crawford Seeger’s playful Suite, the pieces explore myriad emotions and techniques. Johannes Brahms’ Piano Quintet is often called the crown of his chamber music.

Rebekah Heller is an artist whose work aims to expand the sonic possibilities of her instrument and the field at large. Called “an impressive solo bassoonist” by The New Yorker, she made her solo debut with the New York Philharmonic in 2018. She has two critically acclaimed solo albums of music written for and with her and has been featured on dozens of celebrated collaborative recordings.

Ms. Heller served as Principal Bassoonist of the Jacksonville Symphony. She is a proud alum of the New World Symphony, where she served from 2005-08. She will be accompanied by 77 young musicians who are granted fellowships lasting up to three years at NWS.
