In The Pocket NYC member, Angela Shankar, will be featured performing Artie Shaw's Concerto for Clarinet with The Chelsea Symphony on Friday, October 23rd and Saturday, October 24th! Don't miss this great concert!
This October series brings The Chelsea Symphony to The DiMenna Center for Classical Musicians for the first time. This concert will feature guest artist Weiyin Chen at the piano for George Gershwin’s beloved Rhapsody in Blue, a fusion of classical music and jazz effects. We will be taken on an excursion with Gerard Schwarz’s orchestral tone poem, A Journey, for its NYC premiere. The orchestra’s own Angela Shankar will introduce us into the world of jazz with Artie Shaw’s virtuosic Clarinet Concerto and a world premiere piece by TCS composer-in-residence Aaron Dai entitled Allegretto Giocoso will open the concert.
Tickets will be available at the door for a suggested donation of $20.
This concert will be held at The DiMenna Center for Classical Music, 450 W. 37th St.
