The Chelsea Symphony's January Concerts Feature Jean Sibelius' Symphony No 2
The Chelsea Symphony, featured in the hit Amazon show Mozart in the Jungle, begins 2019 with a concert on January 25 and 26 featuring Jean Sibelius's Symphony No 2, famously called by the composer "a confession of the soul."
Also on the concert is the World Premiere of Four Miniatures for a Dark Age by Aaron Dai, Ballade for Flute and Orchestra by Frank Martin with flutist Kim Lewis (1/25 only), Violin Concerto in D minor by J.S. Bach with violinist Béa Naumann (1/25 only), and Carl Nielsen's Clarinet Concerto with clarinetist Sarah Koop McCoy (1/26 only). This concert is conducted by Matthew Aubin and Nell Flanders.
Last season's concerts featured an Earth Day celebration performing John Luther Adams's Become Ocean under the whale in the American Museum of Natural History, which was hailed by Lucid Culture as an "epic, intense, mightily enveloping concert." The Chelsea Symphony is also known for their outreach concerts with the inmates at Rikers Island. TCS brings the whole orchestra, horn quartets, and small string ensembles to perform and engage with the inmates several times each year.
Offering seven concert series from September 2018 through June 2019, each performance in The Chelsea Symphony's 2018/19 Resolution season features orchestral works with a focus on social action.
Every concert by The Chelsea Symphony features soloists, composers, and conductors taken from the ensemble. This is a collective of New York City professional freelancers coming together to create meaningful, self-governed concerts-a unique model in the classical world.
