Chasing the MusicJune 04, 2017
The CMAK Sandy Hook Memorial Foundation presents "Chasing the Music," a classical music event featuring Saint-Saens' "Carnival of Animals" performed by members of the NY Philharmonic and friends of Carter Brey. This will be an exceptional event bringing world renowned musicians to entertain the audience of adults and youth alike in memory of Chase and in support of the CMAK Foundation.
In the spirit of Chase and the mission of the Foundation, CMAK will use the event to introduce youth to classical music. The event will consist of two sessions. First, eleven musicians will perform Saint-Saens "Carnival of Animals" where each movement represents a different animal. This famous symphony was originally composed by Saint-Saens for school children. The youth invited will be able to view this performance produced for their enjoyment. They will depart the theater at intermission. After intermission, Carter Brey will select movements of his choice to entertain the adult audience.
VIP Reception: The performance will be followed by a reception with a meet and greet with some of the performers. (Included only with the $100 ticket)
