We are thrilled to present a two part concert series featuring Lotus Chamber Music Collective set outdoors in The Aldrich Sculpture Garden in collaboration with Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra.
The concert delves into ways we navigate physical and mental spaces through the lens of our identities. The featured composers consider the question “How do the spaces we actively create or inactively participate in effect the way we interact with the world?” The program includes works by Caroline Shaw, Astor Piazzolla, Rhiannon Giddens, Hawa Kassé Mady Debaté, and Jessie Montgomery.
The core ensemble of The Lotus Chamber Music Collective performing in this concert include Tiffany Weiss, violin, Emily Frederick, violin, Brianne Lugo, viola, and Sasha Ono, cello. The Lotus Chamber Music Collective’s mission is to strengthen communities through highly accessible music and social experiences that reflect the hopes, dreams, and concerns of community members, with the aim of highlighting the diversity in our world. Lotus Chamber Music Collective is a recipient of a Chamber Music America Ensemble Forward Grant, made possible with generous support from the New York Community Trust.
Please plan on bringing a lawn chair or blanket for seating in the Sculpture Garden lawn; staff will be onsite to help with social distancing protocols, and please wear a mask for everyone’s safety.
