Aaron Dai: The Night Before Christmas

The Chelsea Symphony's one-night-only holiday concert features a special guest narrator in a beloved annual TCS tradition, the performance of resident composer Aaron Dai's The Night Before Christmas. The concert opens with two festive brass works featuring trumpeter Warren Wernick: Leopold Mozart's Sinfonia Pastorale and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Concert Rondo. The Reinecke Flute Concerto featuring Dirk Wels, and the smoldering Moldau by Smetana close out the first half. The concert continues with Tzigane by Ravel featuring violinist Megan Hilands. This year TCS is thrilled to present another celebrated tradition, our annual performance of Sleigh Ride, this year guest conducted by the winning bidder of the 2016-17 holiday auction, and a person very close to the orchestra, Pam Aubin!

A silent auction in support of the orchestra will take place before the downbeat and during intermission, concluding during a festive wine reception following the concert.
Start your holiday season with TCS!

Concerts will be held at St. Paul's German Lutheran Church, 315 West 22nd Street

New York City Master Chorale presents Grant Us Peace

New York City Master Chorale
Thea Kano, Artistic Director
Dusty Francis, Principal Conductor
Laura Inman, Assistant Conductor
James Kennerley, Organ


Finzi: In Terra Pax
Schoenberg: Friede auf Erden
Bach “Dona Nobis Pacem” from B Minor Mass
As well as arrangements of holiday favorites

"We were inspired to program a theme of peace in response to the conflicts our world continues to face," says Dr. Kano. “Music has the power to heal and bring together cultures unlike any other expression. The diversity and message of these works represent that desire for conflict resolution, while showing off the phenomenal musicianship of the New York City Master Chorale.”

“The composers featured on this program were deeply inspired by the texts they've set, and the resulting works are as breathtaking as they are challenging," adds Mr. Francis. "The singers are excited to be revisiting beloved favorites like Bach's "Dona Nobis Pacem" and to be discovering rarely heard masterpieces such as Schoenberg's astonishing Friede auf Erde.”

Dec 1: Studio Dan at ACFNY

Studio Dan

The Austrian Cultural Forum New York presents the contemporary music ensemble Studio Dan in their US debut. Admission is free, and reservations (online at ACFNY.org) are required. The concert features the world premiere performance of a commissioned work by Christian F. Schiller (*1977). Schiller studied composition with Gerd Kühr and Georg Friedrich Haas in Graz, and his music has been performed by prestigious ensembles including Klangforum Wien and Ensemble Recherche. On the other half of the program, Studio Dan performs original music that was written by Daniel Riegler to accompany the multimedia installation HOMO FABER. The installation juxtaposed historical sound recordings and works by sculptor Fritz Wotruba with texts and works from the artist duo Krüger and Pardeller, alongside Mr. Riegler's compositions. From 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, a video of the installation will run in ACFNY's theater.
