The Berkshire Opera Company Presents a Diverse Program of Berkshire Inspired Music on July 13 at the Clark

For Immediate Release

July 03, 2006

Enjoy an afternoon of Berkshire-inspired music with the Berkshire Opera Company as they present an intriguing and lively concert program including works by Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, and James Taylor. The program, “Thou Beautiful – Music Born in the Berkshires” will take place on Thursday, July 13 at 3 pm at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. For tickets, $20 ($15 members), call the Berkshire Opera Company box office at (413) 442-0099 or visit www.berkshireopera.org.

The diverse and exciting program will feature Shaker hymns, music by William Billings, Amy Beach, American musical icons Aaron Copland and Charles Ives, the inimitable Leonard Bernstein, and the ever-popular folk artist James Taylor, performed by members of the Berkshire Opera Company’s Resident Artists with Kathleen Kelly, Mark Trawka and others.

The Berkshires is a center of creative energy and innovation for artists at the height of their craft. For over a century artistic legends have been drawn to this bucolic region of western New England in search of inspiration in the region’s rolling hills. Join the Berkshire Opera Company as they celebrate that creative spirit with an afternoon of Berkshire inspired music at the Clark.
