Classical Concerts: THE CHEVALIER PROJECT
Setzer Foundation Auditorium
Sunday, November 14, 2021
Advance registration required; registration closes day before concert
Seating is limited.
The life and music of French-Senegalese, composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint Georges has largely been overlooked until now. We welcome you to honor the Chevalier’s musical contributions at a major celebration of his life and work. Meet the creators of the VITA Academy’s Chevalier Project, which brings to life the talent of this extraordinary composer through music, video, and an interactive study guide. Audiences of all ages will glimpse the challenges he faced because of his skin color and get a sense of his strength of character, intellectual prowess, and exceptional gift for music. Special guests from the KAST Academy Dance Studio will perform a work alongside the Chevalier String Quartet to the music of Saint-Georges.
Free with admission.
Changes have been made in the museum to ensure a safe and healthy visit. As we bring back in-person programming, we have reduced the attendance capacity of our performances and programs to assure that we can be physically distant, while also socially connected. Protective face coverings are required for staff and all visitors over the age of two while inside the Museum and in the Setzer Auditorium. Vaccinated performers will not be required to wear masks, and vocalists on stage will be stationed 10ft or more from the general audience.
For the most up-to-date Museum safety protocol, please visit our Visitor Information page.
Advance registration is required.
