We are thrilled to welcome both of our Artistic Directors to the podium, including Matthew Aubin who stepped in to save the day at the last minute!

The Chelsea Symphony continues its thirteenth season RESOLUTION: MUSIC OF SOCIAL ACTION by welcoming co-founder Yaniv Segal back in a unique dual role as conductor and arranger.

Preceding the Beethoven second half, Yaniv will take the podium to conduct solo violist David Bojanowski for Paul Hindemith's Trauermusik on Friday night and violin soloist Phong Ta for the US premiere of Flight, Concerto for Violin and Strings, by Oliver Davis.

Concerts will be held at St. Paul's German Lutheran Church, 315 West 22nd Street
