A Special String Orchestra Concert
Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra
A unique concert centered around Nadia Boulanger and her legacy.
This event is limited to 40 seats. It is a rare opportunity to hear a String Orchestra
in an intimate salon concert setting.
Doors Open at 7pm
The concert will begin promptly at 7:30
The concert will explore the musical world around Nadia Boulanger and the world which she influenced. Suite Française is delighted to partner with conductor Chris Whittaker and the Washington Heights Chamber Orchestra in an all String Orchestra concert featuring works by Gabriel Fauré, Nadia’s teacher; Lili Boulanger, Nadia’s sister; David Diamond, one of her students; and works of the third and fourth generations of students in “La Boulangerie.”
As part of this program “All Around Boulanger” we are pleased to present “Hush” written by Annika Socolofsky. Annika studied at the EAMA Summer Music Institute in 2011. She thus represents the Third Generation in the continuance of Nadia Boulanger’s great tradition.
