On Tuesday, June 12, GISNY is proud to sponsor an event at the Chelsea Music Festival:
Dances to Eternity— Bach Trinity Cantatas III
6:30pm— Festival Talks II | From First Date to Last Note
7:30 PM | St. Paul's German Church
This evening features four works that build from Bach’s elegant & spirited 5th French Suite for solo piano to full ensemble in Bach’s towering Trinity Cantata BWV 20 of 1724, Bach’s first season as Cantor in Leipzig. At the center of the program are two works by Composer-in-Residence Aaron Jay Kernis featuring a NY premiere performance of First Club Date with cellist Matt Haimovitz, as well as Effortlessly, Love Flows performed by Ronnie Oliver Jr. and the Chelsea Music Festival Chamber Choir.
Come early to enjoy a conversation about the process of creation, from the first impression to final iteration. Joined by 2018 Composer-in-Residence Aaron Jay Kernis, musicians Matt Haimovitz & Andrea Lam and hosted by Artistic Directors Melinda Lee Masur and Ken-David Masur.
The Chelsea Music Festival will take place June 8-16 in lower Manhattan. The CMF is organized by several GISNY alumni. This year CMF celebrates it's 9th annual summer season!
