An Acoustical Masterpiece

Last night, New Century made its first stop on the 2011 East Coast Tour: Mechanics Hall, internationally regarded as one of the world’s great concert halls for its superb acoustics.

Tonight, the ensemble headed 50 miles west to perform at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. But not without having some fun on the tour bus first! Anna Kruger, Principal Violist, got a little creative with her ice packs:

  2. The “acoustical masterpiece” must have thought to itself, “why, I’ve been waiting here on Main Street all my life for a group that understands the depths of my lonely soul! New Century, please don’t go!”

    The mayor of Worcester should issue a proclamation, give New Century the keys to the City, the keys to Mechanics Hall, and just watch what happens.

    • Joking aside, I was at the concert, and it was such a beautiful evening of music which I will never forget. I’m from Worcester, and I certainly hope New Century returns here soon–have a great tour. I hope we treated you well!
