We are thrilled to present yMusic at our next concert. Hailed by NPR’s Fred Child as “one of the groups that has really helped to shape the future of classical music,” yMusic is a group of six New York City instrumentalists flourishing in the overlap between the pop and classical worlds. Their virtuosic execution and unique configuration (string trio, flute, clarinet, and trumpet) has attracted the attention of high profile collaborators—from Dirty Projectors to My Brightest Diamond—and more recently inspired an expanding repertoire of original works by some of today’s foremost composers.
Sunday 14 December, yMusic
Doors at 2:30 PM, concert begins at 3 PM sharp.
To kick off our holiday festivities we are pleased to present “Truman Capote’s A Christmas Memory: A Reading for the Holidays” With Jack Herholdt and Suzanne Savoy.
“A Christmas Memory” is a short story by Truman Capote. Originally published in Mademoiselle magazine in December 1956, it was reprinted in The Selected Writings of Truman Capote in 1963. It was issued in a stand-alone hardcover edition by Random House in 1966, and it has been published in many editions and anthologies since.
The largely autobiographical story, which takes place in the 1930s, describes a period in the lives of the seven-year-old narrator and an elderly woman who is his distant cousin and best friend. The evocative narrative focuses on country life, friendship, and the joy of giving during the Christmas season, and it also gently yet poignantly touches on loneliness and loss.
Now a holiday classic, “A Christmas Memory” has been broadcast, recorded, filmed, and staged multiple times.
Monday December 1st at 7pm
