2022 Season

The LSCO presents the Orchestral Premiere of BRITTLE, BRIGHT Thursday July 28, 7:30PM

In its first public concert in nearly two years, the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra presents BRITTLE, BRIGHT, the final work of LSCO bassoonist and resident composer Bradley Bombardier, who passed away in 2019.

The performance represents the creative contributions of two local artists: Mina Kaiser who completed the orchestration, and mezzo soprano Sarah Knott, soloist in the work. Knott initially conceived the idea of commissioning a work around BRITTLE, BRIGHT, a volume of poetry by Marion Thompson van Steenwyk. Van Steenwyk was born in Superior, WI and educated in Duluth, MN.
