Friday, September 16 | Noon – 12:45PM

Rose Theatre at Endicott College, Beverly, MA

Daniel Fridley, bass, recently moved to the Boston area after finishing his Doctorate of Musical Arts in Historical Performance Practice at Case Western Reserve University. While specializing in opera and early music, he retains a passion for chamber recitals such as this. September, the height of autumn, also serves as the first taste of the coming winter. The crispness of the morning air heralds the coming frost, and the colorful leaves presage bare branches. Composers have a variety of ways of responding to this turning of the seasons, from remembrances of summer’s heat to fear for the waning year.
