05-19-19 Summer Winds - WCRI’s Festival Series featuring The Newport Music Festival

May 20th, 2019

In this program WCRI host Mike Maino and The Newport Music Festivals Executive Director Pamela Pantos continue to preview the Newport Music Festival 2019 Season. In today's show they discuss the Summer Winds concert at The Breakers on Tuesday, July 16 @ 8:00 pm. Arnold Bax was a wonderful pianist but loved writing poetry and composing. He spent a great deal of time in Ireland and made deep friendships. In the 1916 Easter Uprising, several of these friends were brutally executed. The Elegiac Trio composed that Spring was written as a memorial. Beautifully tranquil and dreamlike in nature, it is a gorgeous homage to those whom he loved. For more information on the Newport Music Festival or to purchase tickets to one of their concerts visit newportmusic.org or call 401-849-0700.
