What's interesting about these concerts?
A Tight Deadline
After violinist Franz Clement asked Beethoven to compose a "nice violin concerto" with less than a month's notice for an upcoming performance, he cranked out his one and only work for solo violin and orchestra in just TWO WEEKS! A little more notice next time, okay, Franz?
A Community-Minded Guest Artist
In addition to being an incredible violinist, Kelly Hall-Tompkins, the 2017 New Yorker of the Year and this weekend’s guest artist, runs the foundation Music Kitchen – Food for the Soul, where she takes her gift of music and brings it to homeless shelters around New York to share art with those who need it most.
