One of our greatest strengths is the high quality of our collaborators. Our musicians are outstanding, vivid personalities, and the composers whose works we commission and perform elevate our performances with their inspired creativity. And while this is true of all of our concerts, it is often most apparent in our favorite annual tradition, the Boston Musica Viva Annual Family Concert. This season, we welcome back two youth groups that exemplify artistry and professionalism through their discipline and beautiful training; the Northeast Youth Ballet and the Boston City Singers.

Barbara White, whose thought-provoking My barn having burned to the ground, I can now see the moon appeared on our series last season, returns to write a new ballet for BMV and NYB rooted in Celtic folklore. BCS joins us for the reprise of a family favorite by Bruce Adolphe, The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses, based on the award-winning Native American story of the same name. Beloved arts and entertainment critic Joyce Kulhawik returns to narrate both works.

Under the leadership of Denise Cecere, NYB has flourished, recently launching a conservatory for many of the career-minded teenage dancers who appear onstage with us. Under the baton of Joshua DeWitte, singers from Dorchester and Cambridge—including many disadvantaged youth—come together to make music at an impressive level.

We at Boston Musica Viva are extremely proud to perform alongside both of these groups!
