30 Gainsborough St.
Update: Due to the weather forecast, the concert is taking place in Jordan Hall at New England Conservatory instead of at the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade.
The New World Chorale joins the Mercury Orchestra, conducted by Channing Yu, for a performance of Phaudrig Crohoore, a popular ballad by the Irish novelist J. Sheridan Le Fanu set to music by the Irish composer Sir Charles Villiers Stanford. The piece tells the tale of a bold, roughhewn Irishman with a heart of gold, against a backdrop of family feuding and romance.
The program also includes American composer Amy Beach’s masterful Symphony in E minor (“Gaelic”), which was premiered in Boston in 1896.
This concert is hosted by the Boston Landmarks Orchestra.
