Featuring Quincy composer Delvyn Case’s Lighthouse Keeper and Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony, Palaver Strings brings the Thomas Crane Public Library in Quincy a concert for families with young children. Lighthouse Keeper tells through music and narration the story of Abbie Burgess Grant, the 19th century teenager who tended a lighthouse off the coast of Maine during a great Nor’easter, saving the lives of countless sailors. Britten’s Simple Symphony is a piece of dynamic and contrasting movements, built on themes Britten composed when he was himself a young child.
