Cathryn Gaylord believes #MusicMatters

With a gift to The TŌN fund, you support students like Cathryn, who present free concerts and music education programs in libraries, schools, and community centers in the Hudson Valley and New York City.

Your support will also keep TŌN on the stages of Carnegie Hall, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater, and Bard College’s Fisher Center, and keep Around Town concerts free for family audiences across the boroughs of New York City.

In this season of giving, please help Cathryn and TŌN share the love of great concert music. Make a gift to The Orchestra Now today!

Healing the Divide at Bard

The Millbrook Independent

“The agnostic question hung in the air during intermission. Did the future belong to Sibelius whose legacy has flowered fruitfully in Finland, a legacy that now rivals those Americans who followed in the footsteps of Ives: Cage, Riley, Adams, and others. A synthesis of these two rival traditions appeared in the world premiere of Tamzin Elliott’s Daughters Concerto with Blair McMillen on the piano, which began more with the dissonant tradition tamed and feminized. Piano and orchestra discussed and debated the situation. Strings argued for more lyricism and mysticism as the piano made modulating compromises while always pushing into new rhythms, new terrain, new sounds of exploration. The result was suspenseful, engaging, enlightening. Yes, one could have both streams flow as one. For me this piece was a memorable revelation, the highlight of the evening.” – Kevin T. McEneaney

BARD’S THE ORCHESTRA NOW SOARS

The Millbrook Independent

“The first performance of the full TŌN (pronounced tone) Orchestra, The Orchestra Now, at Bard proved to be a resounding success on October 24. This augers well for both students, patrons, and loyal attendees of the Sosnoff Theater where the concert hall was 95% sold out as conductor Leon Botstein took the podium.

The result [of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 11] was terrifying, musically overpowering, thrilling. Botstein and orchestra became a single entity. The audience sat stunned, speechless. People gradually began to applaud, then slowly stand, until all were standing and applauding. What an auspicious start to the TŌN project!” – Kevin T. McEneaney
