fiddler

Fiddler on the Roof, based on Tevye and his Daughters and Other Tales by Sholem Aleichem, with music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and book by Joseph Stein, is set in the troubled times of Imperial Russia in 1905.  The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his many attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family’s lives.  He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love – each one’s choice of a husband moves further away from the customs of his faith – and with the edict of the Tsar who evicts the Jews from their village.  A heartwarming story, full of beloved music, and a wonderful cast of characters, including the iconic Tevye, Fiddler on the Roof is a family musical tradition that is a timeless treat.

The annual All New England Band Festival, featuring the PSU Symphonic Band as well as 200 high school musicians. The concert will conclude a day-long event involving honor band members representing 65 high schools, from all six New England states. The students were chosen from more than 400 who applied for the festival from a total of 80 high schools. Selections were based on students’ individual musical achievements while attending the schools they are representing. More than two-thirds of those selected have been members of their respective all-state bands or orchestras. This year we welcome composers Johan De Meij and Travis Weller as guest conductors.

This event often sells out – call early for tickets.
