SONGS OF HOPE
The Chelsea Symphony performs music by three contemporary composers whose work captures the American experience. Missy Mazzoli’s River Rouge Transfiguration draws inspiration from the dynamic landscape of Detroit. Gabriela Lena Frank’s Elegía Andina explores the composer’s multicultural (Lithuanian-Jewish-Chinese-Peruvian-Spanish) identity. Joan Tower’s Made in America is an uplifting meditation on how we can keep our country beautiful, even in times of uncertainty and turmoil.

MANUAL EARDRUMS | JUDY DUNAWAY
Manual Eardrums is about seeing sound with your hands, via holding an inflated latex balloon. In this interactive sound installation, listening with the ears is not the intention, but rather surfing the sound waves by feeling them as they mutate, shift and change through the space. The gallery is stripped bare of visual material, save for the bodies of the installation visitors moving freely through the space as they explore the ever changing acoustic patterns. Each visitor will be provided an inflated latex balloon and instructions for how to participate.
Saturday, March 7 and Sunday, March 8 between 12:00 PM and 6:00 PM
ChaShaMa, 675 3rd Avenue, 32nd Floor, New York, NY
