A highlight of the Chelsea Music Festival will be “The Blue Sea Slumbers— Featuring GHOSTLIGHT” on June 8, 2019

The German Consulate General Recommends:

Spaning over 500 years, this concert will highlight the great heritage of choral singing through the versatility of the GHOSTLIGHT Chorus. Rarities for mixed choir by Clara Schumann and Johannes Ockeghem are paired with J.S.Bach’s masterful motet for double chorus. GHOSTLIGHT then joins Festival musicians in Binna Kim’s Festival Commission stacked emotions and the World Premiere performance of Requiem by Kathryn Salfelder.  Tickets to this performance include a reception as well as the Late Night Jazz Performance which starts at 10 pm.

The reception is generously underwritten by Elizabeth & Stephen Thomson
