Chelsea Music Festival announced the theme of this year’s program: “10th Season | 200° due Clara.” The festival in NYC’s Chelsea district takes place from June 6-15, and will feature performances by The Clara Schumann Ten, a distinguished group of female composers, whose inspiration is drawn from visual art, poetry, and letters and text from Clara Schumann’s life.
With additional venues and new partnerships, this anniversary season will be one you won’t want to miss. A full line-up is available at the festival’s website here. Tickets are on sale now.
Hailed by The New York Times as a “gem of a series,” the Chelsea Music Festival exists to celebrate great music by bringing together world-leading musicians and exciting newcomers to the international stage. Inspired by its Chelsea roots, the Festival seeks to reflect the creativity gathered in one of New York City’s most dynamic neighborhoods by presenting site-specific programs that span musical genres ranging from classical to contemporary to jazz. With an emphasis on Festival-commissioned works, community outreach, and education, the Festival also exists to create a gateway to music through the exploration and interplay of art forms – specifically the musical, visual and culinary – alongside an intimate and thrilling Festival experience shared by artists and concert-goers alike.
