February 11, 2019: John Adams in Amsterdam: A Song for Abigail
Time: 6:00 PM
In a special kick-off to our 11th season, the Knickerbocker Chamber Orchestra is pleased to announce an exclusive performance of “John Adams in Amsterdam: A Song for Abigail,” music by KCO Music Director Gary S. Fagin, libretto by Terry Quinn, on the evening of Monday, February 11, 2019, at the famed Knickerbocker Club.
Experience the world premiere of KCO Music Director Gary S. Fagin’s delightful one-act opera for children. Based on a Native American myth, the allegory follows the courageous journey of Jumping Mouse as she interacts with other animals and perseveres through challenges in pursuit of her dreams. Wonderfully engaging family entertainment, with four singers and an ensemble of Knickerbocker Chamber Orchestra musicians, Jumping Mouse is a beautiful musical parable of inspiration, altruism and transformation.
