Music Director Robert Lehmann leads the North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra in the first concert of the Orchestra’s 72nd season on Sunday, November 17, 3 p.m. at Swampscott High School Auditorium.

Mozart, Shubert Begin 72nd Year of
North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra
fall 18 07a.jpg
Music Director Robert Lehmann and the North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra begin the Orchestra’s 72 nd season on Sunday, November 17 with music of Franz Shubert and W.A. Mozart.
The 3 p.m. concert at Swampscott High School Auditorium will feature Shubert’s Symphony No. 8, “Unfinished” and the Mozart “Mass in C Minor.”  Tickets will be available at the door for $30, $25 for seniors and students, and children 12 and under are admitted free.  Tickets can be purchased in advance at
The concert marks the start of Maestro Lehmann’s 22 nd as the Orchestra’s Music Director.
Shubert’s Symphony No. 8, popularly known as the Unfinished, was begun six years before the composer’s death in 1828.  It contains, however, only two fully orchestrated movements, and musical scholars have debated whether the composer intended to write a traditional four-movement symphony.
Mozart’s Mass in D minor was completed in 1783.  The piece depicts the traditional outline of a Mass celebration in their order of liturgy and ritual.  It is considered one of Mozart’s greatest works.  It is grand in scale and reveals the influence in Mozart’s work of Bach and Handel, whom Mozart studied diligently.
The NSPO, founded in 1947, plays a season of three subscription concerts at Swampscott High School Auditorium.  After the November 17 “Fall” concert, the “Winter” Concert will be held Sunday, March 1, 2020 at 3 p.m. with a program that includes Borodin’s Polovtsian Dancs, Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, and the New England Premiere of Daniel Crozier’s Concerto for Two Clarinets, with soloists William and Catherine Hudgins.
The Orchestra’s “Spring” Concert is April 26, 2020 also at 3 p.m..  The program will include Ralph Vaughn-Williams “Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis”, William Walton’s Viola concerto featuring Kimberly Lehmann, and the Symphony No. 5 of Sergei Prokofiev.
In addition, the Orchestra plays two holiday concerts on December 8, 4 p.m. at St. Richard’s Church in Danvers and December 15, 4 p.m. at St. Anthony’s Church in Revere.  Admission to both concerts is free in exchange for a substantial donation of non-perishable food to benefit local food pantries.

Dance company Ancient Rhythms show at MAGMA Dance in Gloucester Today Saturday, November 9

I’m Karen McLane. My family built a house in 1870 in Rockport and WE STILL HAVE IT. And oh, I am a direct descendant of Richard Tarr, first settler of Rockport, through my great-great-grandmother, Eldora Tarr. My dad, Merrill McLane, was a local historian, writing books about Rockport, and he was a founding member of the “Rights of Way” Committee.

I’m in town with my dance company, Ancient Rhythms, for a show at MAGMA Dance in Gloucester Saturday, November 9. We’re excited to be working with some local dancers to present an exuberant dance performance with fantastical costumes, and something for everyone ages 8 and up. A few years ago, our dancers came up to perform our original production of The Crowning of the Woodland queen at Windhover. We are excited to share our dance again via a new production on the North Shore!

We have a fabulous audience base in the DC area, but here we are not really known. We would appreciate a shoutout from you so the Gloucester community knows about the performance tomorrow night.

See below for all the details and don’t hesitate to get in touch! Thank you so much.

~Karen McLane
