The Chelsea Symphony: REMEMBRANCE
Please note: Proof of COVID-19 vaccination status and indoor masking may be required for entry. Subscribe to the TCS email newsletter or follow our social media pages for updates to our COVID mitigation policies.
In these concerts, we honor the loved ones we have lost. Tim Kiah’s new work remembers our dear friend Kurt Behnke, a longtime cellist with TCS. The series also features the premiere of Kamala Sankaram’s 91919 (10/30), a moving meditation on grief. Franz Schubert’s lyrical Unfinished Symphony, a work some scholars believe was inspired by personal trauma, demonstrates the power of music to provide solace. Concertos by Camille Saint-Saëns (10/29), Lars-Erik Larsson (10/29), and Arvo Pärt (10/30) round out the program.
