The Chevalier at Caramoor

PROGRAM
A Concert Theater Work About Joseph Bologne Written and Directed by Bill Barclay

This innovative work of concert theater honors the life of Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges — a prolific 18th-century composer, virtuoso violinist, the finest fencer in Europe, general of Europe’s first Black regiment, and a crusader for equality. The story of this extraordinary artist of color, overlooked in history, is bursting to be told!

The Harlem Chamber Players are joined by four actors and violinist Brendon Elliott for this concert theater work exploring Bologne’s music, friendships with Mozart and Marie Antoinette, and his unknown contribution to the abolishment of slavery.

For those who prefer a more casual concert environment, Garden Listening tickets are $20, and are free for Members and children under 18 years old. Listen to the concert broadcast onto Friends Field (audio only) while enjoying a picnic, admiring a starry sky, or relaxing with the family. We recommend you bring your own seating for Garden Listening.
