In partnership with Hill Center and Washington Performing Arts, musicians from the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra present a chamber concert inspired by Shakespeare and other works of poetry and theater. Orpheus was formed in 1972 by a group of young artists who made history by creating an orchestra without a conductor in which musicians led themselves democratically. An essential part of New York City’s cultural landscape, Orpheus presents annual series at Carnegie Hall and 92Y.

As part of SHIFT: A Festival of American OrchestrasOrpheus will perform “A Harlem Dream,” an original collaboration with the Classical Theatre of Harlem, co-presented by the John. F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and Washington Performing Arts.

CAPITOL HILL COMMUNITY FOUNDATIONThis chamber concert is made possible by support from the Capitol Hill Community Foundation.

Co-presented by The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts & Washington Performing Arts in collaboration with the League of American Orchestras as part of #SHIFTmusic:
