Glens Falls Symphony Presents Regional Premiere by Pulitzer & Grammy-Winning Composer Jennifer Higdon on Nov. 13

GLENS FALLS — The Glens Falls Symphony will present an evening of music from the opera stage, including the regional premiere of Cold Mountain Suite by renowned composer Jennifer Higdon – at 4 p.m. on Nov. 13. The piece was co-commissioned by the Glens Falls Symphony with the ‘New Music for America’ consortium of 36 orchestras. 

Higdon will be in residency during rehearsals and performance of Cold Mountain Suite, and will be presenting the pre-concert talk at 3 p.m. The work is based on Higdon’s opera Cold Mountain, which in turn is based on the New York Times best-selling novel Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier. The novel tells the story of a deserter of the confederate army named W.P. Inman, and chronicles his journey back home to find the love of his life. 

The concert will open with the Toccata and Intermezzi movements from Claudio Monteverdi’s 1607 opera, L’Orfeo, considered by many to be the earliest-composed work of opera that is still regularly performed. The orchestral Higdon work, Cold Mountain Suite, will follow
