*****

The Chelsea Symphony presents “Songs of Hope” on March 6-7 during its fourteenth season RISE UP. All works on this program are by living composers. TCS is proud to feature four performers and three works in honor of International Women's Day.

This program features three contemporary composers whose work captures the American experience. Missy Mazzoli's River Rouge Transfiguration draws inspiration from the dynamic landscape of Detroit. Gabriela Lena Frank's Elegía Andina explores the composer's multicultural (Lithuanian-Jewish-Chinese-Peruvian-Spanish) identity. Joan Tower's Made in America is an uplifting meditation on how we can keep our country beautiful, even in times of uncertainty and turmoil.

The program opens with two world premieres by TCS resident composers: Tim Kiah's Truth unto the People, dedicated to Sojourner Truth and inspired by her 1851 speech at the Women's Rights Convention in Akron, OH. The piece will include text from this speech featuring two guest vocalists, Bonita Oliver and Onome. Both nights will also present a concerto for two horns and wind ensemble by Mike Boyman, featuring TCS musicians Jessica Santiago and Emily Wong.

Concert run time: 105 minutes including a 15-minute intermission
Concert will be held at the St. Paul's German Lutheran Church, 315 West 22nd Street
