The Chelsea Symphony in New York City (the orchestra I co-founded over ten years ago) will perform the world premiere performances of “The Triumph of Love” during their 2018-19 season, on October 26th and 27th!
I will be conducting the work, and the Beethoven-centric program will also feature TCS co-artistic Director Matthew Aubin and the Eroica Symphony on the second half. I have not had the chance to work with the orchestra for several years, and am super excited to return in the fall, especially with this music. The last time I heard the orchestra live was in January 2015, when principal cello Erich Schoen-Rene played a cello concerto I wrote for him, conducted by Reuben Blundell. Since then, the orchestra has continued to thrive and do amazing things, such as start up an incredible performance series on Rikers Island, perform under the whale at the Natural History Museum on Earth Day, and be the featured ensemble on the hit Amazon series Mozart in the Jungle. Check out their website (www.chelseasymphony.org) to learn more about this versatile and inspiring group of musicians.
The October performances will coincide with the public release of Beethoven Reimagined, and there will be a gathering/release party after one of the Chelsea Symphony performances. More details to follow.
