BERNSTEIN Chichester Psalms
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 9
Bernstein's Chichester Psalms reflects on human nature and the complexity of a global world, from the joyous Psalm 100 ("Make a joyful noise unto the Lord all ye lands") to Psalm 133 ("Behold how good and pleasant it is for the brethren to dwell together in unity"). Of course no piece of music is more well known that Beethoven's own comment on humanity; join Symphony NH to hear Beethoven's Ninth Symphony live.
Sameer Patel is one of America's most exciting young conductors recognized for his versatile musicianship and passionate communication, currently Associate Conductor of San Diego Symphony.
In summer 2016, Sameer was selected among 120 conductors to study at Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, Italy. In 2013, he was one of only six selected by the League of American orchestras for the Bruno Walter National Conductor Preview with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, which highlights emerging conductors.
