From June 6-15, 2019, the Chelsea Music Festival celebrates “200° due Clara” inspired by the 200th anniversary of the birth of Clara Schumann, join them for two special family friendly events.

From June 6-15, 2019, the Chelsea Music Festival celebrates its tenth season with the theme “200° due Clara” inspired by the 200th anniversary of the birth of Clara Schumann. The festival honors the legacy and contributions of a pioneering performer, caring collaborator, and artistic confidant through events highlighting the performing, visual, and culinary arts. Events will take place over ten days in June throughout the Chelsea neighborhood of NYC and feature classical, jazz, and contemporary music in evening concerts, lectures, walking tours, and family events.

To mark Clara Schumann’s anniversary, the festival will feature The Clara Schumann Ten, a distinguished group of female composers. Music will include New York and World premieres by our 2019 Composers-in-Commission Jane Antonia Cornish, Helen Grime, Binna Kim, Jessica Mays, Santa Ratniece, Kathryn Salfelder, Aigerim Seilova, Nicky Sohn, Augusta Read Thomas, and Liliya Ugay. The composers will be responding to inspirations including visual art exhibitions, poetry, and letters and text from Clara Schumann’s life.

This week’s newsletter highlights the two Chelsea Music Festival Family Events. Bring your friends and family and join us in Clara’s world as we venture back to the Schumanns’ musical home— and kitchen!
