Chamber Concert with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra
Sunday, March 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
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 Orchestras, Orpheus 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.
This 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: www.shiftfestival.org
