The Chelsea Symphony: BACK ON THE TOWN Season Opener

Our season opener celebrates the resilience of our community in times of adversity. Leonard Bernstein’s On the Town, written during the darkest days of World War II, depicts an exuberant romp through New York City. The very title of Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia comes from the ancient Greek words for “together” and “sound”—the essence of reuniting through music. The program opens with the New York City premiere of Valerie Coleman’s Seven O’Clock Shout, a tribute to the frontline workers who have sustained us through the pandemic. PROGRAM:

Valerie Coleman: Seven O’Clock Shout (NYC Premiere) Leonard Bernstein: Serenade (After Plato's Symposium), Nicholas Pappone, violin Missy Mazzoli: Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres) Leonard Bernstein: Three Dance Episodes from On the Town

CONDUCTORS: Mark Seto and Nell Flanders
