The Mannes Orchestra is proud to present the preview performance of Carl Davis’s Last Train to Tomorrow at The New School’s Tishman Auditorium. Carl Davis, the legendary composer and conductor, will conduct the work himself.
This semi-staged presentation marks the 80th Anniversary of the Kindertransport movement, a series of rescue efforts which brought thousands of refugee Jewish children to Great Britain from Nazi Germany between 1938 and 1940.
The Mannes Orchestra is joined in performing Last Train to Tomorrow by the Mannes Prep Senior Chorus and students of the School of Drama at The New School. Stage direction by Jennifer Holmes.
The program will include Beethoven's Symphony No. 6, "Pastoral", conducted by David Hayes, artistic director of the Mannes Orchestra.
Approximate Endtime: 9:15 PM
