Information about the Show:

New Hampshire Philharmonic:

Beginning its first season as the Resident Orchestra at the Stockbridge Theater in Derry, NH, The New Hampshire Philharmonic connects people to the power of classical music, using the model of a living laboratory.

Commonly known as “The NH Phil” this group presents compelling concerts, featuring music from the classical canon, as well as from Broadway, Hollywood and contemporary genres.  The Phil embraces modern culture and revels in using music as a mode of education.  The orchestra brings together the finest students, avocational and professional musicians from around New Hampshire.

The Philharmonic is the oldest orchestra in the state of New Hampshire; they trace their roots to 1895, and they have performed regularly since 1905. The orchestra is led by Mark Latham, who also conducts the University Orchestra at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, where he is adjunct professor of conducting, violin and viola.

Pinkerton Academy Chorale:

The Pinkerton Academy Chorale, one of four choral ensembles at Pinkerton Academy in Derry, NH, was founded to provide a choral experience for non-auditioned singers from grades 9-12. The goal of these ensembles is to encourage healthy vocal technique and musical artistry through the performance of a wide and varied choral repertoire of the highest standard of musical excellence and style while training our singers to be musically literate. Many of the students from the Chorale have been selected to perform at the New Hampshire All State Music Festival, the NH Jazz All State Music Festival, All Eastern Music Educators National Conference Music Festivals, and the American Choral Director’s All Eastern Music Festivals.

The Chorale has also been selected to sing in performance with the New Hampshire Philharmonic Orchestra, the New Hampshire Symphony Orchestra and the Nashua (NH) Symphony Orchestra. They have been featured performers at the NH Education Awards, the NH Martin Luther King Celebration and for various local and regional venues. In 1994 the Chorale was selected to represent NH for the 50th Anniversary D-Day Celebrations in Washington D.C., in 2007 the Chorale was invited to sing for the American premiere of “A Zulu Mass” and in 2008 the Chorale represented NH by singing for the 400th Anniversary of Jamestown Celebration.  Pinkerton Academy choruses have also been selected to premier several new works including “Prayer in Spring” by Andrew Boysen and the American premiere of “Behold the Night” by Canadian composer, Larysa Kuzmenko. The Pinkerton Chorale has consistently achieved Superior and First Place awards at several national choral festivals.

Violin Soloist: Jesalina Phan

A sixth grader at Heron field Academy, NH, started to play the violin at age 5 with Louise Kandle. She has also had master classes with Linda Fiore and Aniko Geladze. Jesalina played with the UNH Youth Orchestra for 2 years and she is currently a member of Junior Repertory Orchestra (JRO) in Boston. Jesalina loves to perform and in the summertime she is an avid street musician with a mission and a big heart. Last summer alone she raised over $1,000- all which she donated to her elementary school. Year round, she plays local nursing homes to the residents’ delight. This is her first time playing a solo with an orchestra and she very excited! Jesalina lives in Portsmouth, NH, with her parents and older brother. When she doesn’t study or play her violin she loves drawing, reading, going to the beach, climbing aerial adventure courses and downhill skiing – maybe you will see her on the slopes this winter!
