Intimate & Immersive

Experience the HPO like never before as Music Director Gemma New introduces audiences to a new, interactive orchestral experience. HPO musicians perform an emotive program while a stimulating light and video display animates the story behind the music. The visuals support the mood of the music and dialogue from Gemma offers insight into the character of each piece.
