Event description

Description

The General Theological Seminary Chapel acoustically thrives on music for voices and strings, and tonight’s performance showcases the hallowed space with our two Festival sopranos as well as string masterworks by Clara’s confidants and colleagues, Mendelssohn and Brahms. Guests will also witness the World Premiere performances of two 2019 Festival Commissions by Augusta Read Thomas and Santa Ratniece as they come and gather in this Manhattan oasis.

Click here to hear one of our Clara Schumann Ten composers, Augusta Read Thomas, who the New York Magazine describes as a “"a true virtuoso composer” discuss her process of composition and again here for a sampling of her bold, passionate music.

Augusta Read Thomas Clara’s Ascent (2019)
