Ward Stare, conductor
Leila Josefowicz, violin

MASON BATES Mothership
CINDY MCTEE Einstein’s Dream
STEVE REICH Three Movements for Orchestra
JOHN ADAMS Scheherazade .2

Your RPO takes part in the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival in this adventurous and exciting program featuring four living composers: Bates, McTee, Reich, and Adams. The program opens with Mason Bates’ Mothership, an energetic piece that imagines the orchestra as a mothership that is ‘docked’ by visiting soloists, who offer brief but virtuosic riffs on the work’s thematic material over action-packed electro-acoustic orchestral figuration. Einstein’s Dream by Cindy McTee reads like a diary, each entry recording the dreams of Albert Einstein as he worked on his theory of relativity. Reich’s Three Movements for Orchestra will engage audiences with its unexpected orchestra layout and three movements – fast, slow fast! – that move from one into another without pause. The program concludes with world-renowned violinist Leila Josefowicz as soloist in John Adams’ Scheherazade .2.

“Mike Birbiglia has emerged as one of America’s most gifted comedians..." -- Tom Geier, The Wrap
"If Mike Birbiglia were a piece of furniture, he would surely be a well-worn, deeply stained, slightly squishy couch.... That may not sound like a flattering comparison. But Mr. Birbiglia has great respect and affection for this kind of sofa, and so should you." - Ben Brantley, New York Times

His shows, “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend” and “Thank God for Jokes,” were both filmed for Netflix. His most recent show, “The New One,” ran for 99 shows at the Cort Theatre.

In addition to performing live, Mike is an author and filmmaker who wrote, directed and starred in the films Sleepwalk with Me and Don’t Think Twice. Mike’s book “Sleepwalk with Me and Other Painfully True Stories” was a New York Times bestseller and a finalist for the Thurber Prize for American Humor. As an actor, Mike has appeared on “Inside Amy Schumer,” HBO’s “Girls” and “Broad City,” as well as in the films Trainwreck, The Fault in Our Stars and Popstar. He plays the role of Danny Pearson on “Orange Is the New Black” and Oscar Langstraat on Showtime’s “Billions.” He is a contributor to “This American Life” on public radio.
