  • Robbins Farm Park, from “Arlington” by Erich Stem

The final piece, Robbins Farm Park, is the third and final movement of “Arlington,” a symphonic piece, that was inspired by composer Erich Stem’s visit to Arlington in 2017. The piece was composed specifically for the Arlington Philharmonic which premiered it in April. This will be an amazing opportunity to hear music in the place that inspired it.
