Dan Brown, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code, has a new credential on his already-singular resume: composer of the orchestral music from Wild Symphony, his new illustrated children’s book.
With concerts slated in more than two dozen countries around the world—including a world premiere in Croatia and events in Germany, Spain, Italy, New Zealand, and Argentina, among others—Brown selected The Music Hall in Portsmouth as the venue where he wanted to host the U.S. premiere of his new symphonic suite.
The Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra will perform Brown’s classical debut for the young at heart as a special benefit presented by the author himself. Proceeds from ticket sales go to The Music Hall and the Portsmouth Symphony Orchestra, both 501(c)3 non-profit arts organizations from Brown’s hometown.
Wild Symphony, Brown’s first work for orchestra, features twenty-one musical portraits drawn from the animal kingdom. From the joyous rhythms of “Bouncing Kangaroo” to the mysterious melodies of “Wondrous Whale” to the hair-raising harmonies of “Brilliant Bat,” Wild Symphony is a very wild symphony indeed.
Join us on Chestnut Street before and after the performance for a family-friendly street fair!
Net proceeds from this event will benefit New Hampshire Music Educators Association.
