Once the province of classical or “adult contemporary” singers, the orchestra is increasingly being heard backing up adventurous rockers. On this New Sounds program, we’ll hear Thomas Feiner, Bjork, David Sylvian, Kate Bush, Joanna Newsom, and Anne Ternheim, among others.

For this New Sounds show, we’ll hear some Middle Eastern chamber/lounge/world/jazz. It’s hard to know what to call it, but it’s music with a decided Arabic flavor. Listen to the Canadian trio Cordâme (augmented by percussionists and a guitarist) dance around Ellington and Ravel while incorporating Persian music, Indian music, Armenian and African music.
