The Longwood Symphony Orchestra (LSO) and Partners In Health (PIH) announce Symphonic Relief for Haiti II, a concert to raise much-needed funds to complete the construction of the Center for Excellence in Rehabilitation and Education (CERE) in Mirebalais, Haiti. Once complete, CERE will become the first fully accessible rehabilitation facility within Haiti’s public health system and will provide care to patients who have lost function through disease, accidents, or natural disasters.
The concert is co-sponsored by Arlington Street Church and will be held on Sunday November 4, beginning at 3 pm with a post-concert reception to follow.
The concert will open with a performance of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, featuring four violinists with ties to Haiti and/or arts and rehabilitation. Venezuelan clarinetist Jorge Montilla will perform the Boston premiere of Concertino for Clarinet and Strings by Haitian-American composer-conductor Julio Racine, founder of the Haiti Philharmonic Orchestra. The concert will conclude with Mendelssohn’s String Symphony No. 9 in C.
