Mannes Orchestra: Carl Davis's Last Train to Tomorrow & Beethoven's "Pastoral" Symphony
Friday, April 12, 2019 at 7:30 pm to 9:15 pm
Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center 1941 Broadway, New York, New York
Music director David Hayes leads the Mannes Orchestra in a performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 6, "Pastoral", and guest conductor Carl Davis conducts the U.S. premiere performance of his musical and dramatic work, Last Train to Tomorrow. This semi-staged presentation marks the 80th Anniversary of the Kindertransport movement, a series of rescue efforts which brought thousands of unaccompanied Jewish children from Germany and Nazi-occupied countries to safety, mostly in Great Britain, in the months just before the outbreak of World War II.
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.
Approximate Endtime: 9:15 PM
Known for their bold and adventurous programming, the Mannes Orchestra has been hailed by The New York Times for playing with “inviting warmth and solidity,” and for their “intensity of focus.” The 2018/19 Season has many exciting performances, collaborations, and projects, including performances at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, John L. Tishman Auditorium at The New School, and appearances with the Mannes Opera at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College.
