Kim + ANAM musicians: R Strauss & Montgomery
Sat 10 June @ 19:00 - 21:00$30 – $60
Music can be created and enjoyed regardless of wealth or status. Composer Jessie Montgomery has devoted her career to dismantling barriers in music pedagogy and pushing back against the hypocrisy of the privileged. Such ‘woke’ ideas are not new – 350 years ago, playwright Molière did exactly this in his play Le Bourgeois gentilhomme, later on inspiring Strauss’ sardonic suite of the same name.
Philadelphia Orchestra Concertmaster, David Kim, unearths provocative truths in a program which is by turns satirical and profound.
