A concert premiere from the workshop of Rhode Island composer Steven Jobe featuring a cast of outstanding local musicians. Based on a 14th-century French folktale, the story of Melusine is filled with romance, mystery and shape shifting. Jobe's score delights with a bold blend of orchestral septet with signature instruments including pitched, chromatic glass bells, and a hurdy gurdy collection capped by the 10-foot long "Bosch Hurdy Gurdy".
