Critic’s Choice

Over her forty-year career, Joan Tower has traversed a wide variety of styles in her music. But the best of her works ring with a voice that is distinctly her own.

This week, the Boston Modern Orchestra Project will celebrate Tower’s 80th birthday year with a concert dedicated to some of her lesser-known symphonic works, including Chamber Dance, Red Maple, and Made in America, a searching riff upon “America the Beautiful.”

The program will also include the world premiere of Tianyi Wang’s Under the Dome, which won the Annual BMOP/ NEC Composition Competition. Gil Rose conducts. 

The performance will take place 8 p.m. Friday at Jordan Hall.
