Detailed programs at a glance

We are pleased that you joined us for our 2004-05 season. In 2005-06 we offer an array of chamber music and a revisit of our relationship with the late, great Sir Roland Hanna, from whom we commissioned a number of important works. We also examine the influence of jazz on Stravinsky in 1918, when he wrote his famous "A Soldier's Tale," which we perform with Kurt Vonnegut's original text of Private Eddie Slovick's execution in January 1945. Special focus will be given to Mozart on his 250th birthday in 2006 and to Shostakovich who would have been 100 in this same year.

Please take note that the fourth concert will be held at The Broadway Presbyterian Church (Broadway at 114th Street), selected for this concert after a wide and careful search, for its musical ambience and accessibility. It is handicapped friendly and easily reached by public transportation, using the subway line 1, exiting at either 110th Street or 116th Street, by the No. 104 Broadway bus, or the No. 4 bus (from the East Side). We will be happy to advise you how to get there and to help in anyway we can; your continued support is essential to our future. We hope you will want to join us for this unique offering.
