“Postcards from Buzzards Bay” is a celebration of the great body of water that shapes the lives of all who live and work in and around this wonder of nature. The concert is a collaborative effort between four very different organizations that separately work to invigorate our community: The Tri-County Music Association, the Buzzards Bay Coalition, the Falmouth Art Center, and the Community Boating Center of New Bedford.
The Tri-County Music Association commissioned Cape Cod composer Michael Donovan to write a piece that gives us musical perspective on the body of water that defines our area: “Postcards from Buzzards Bay.” This seven-movement work, to be premiered at the concert, takes us from Dartmouth to Woods Hole and brings to life the many ways that we encounter, embrace, and endure this wonderful Bay. The concert will also feature other works written about the Bay and about the sea, including a premier by Rochester composer John Wallace.
Coalition President Mark Rasmussen and Community Boating Center Executive Director Andy Herlihy will be on hand before, during, and after the concert to share information about the important work of these two organizations to connect more people to Buzzards Bay through boating and outdoor exploration. Coalition Director of Membership Donna Cobert will also perform as a member of the band on the oboe and English horn.
In addition to the musical performance, artists with the Falmouth Art Center will exhibit works celebrating Buzzards Bay at the Simon Center for the Arts.
