About the Event
Come join us for the Mid-Autumn Festival/Moon Festival with our artist and musicians as we honor this holiday with music of celebration, love, and nostalgia. You will be treated to music by American female composer Amy Beach, German composer Johannes Brahms, and a selection of treasured Chinese songs. The charm in Amy Beach’s Romance is perhaps one of its greatest assets as it tugs away at your heartstrings throughout the work. Brahms’s passion, fueled perhaps by his forbidden love for Clara Schumann, is on full display in his Violin Sonata No. 3 in D minor. And lastly, this medley of Chinese pieces takes the listeners deep into the themes of homecoming, community, and love – all of which are central to the Mid-Autumn Festival. Perhaps, at the end of this concert, you will come away with a bountiful “harvest” of music and enrichment. Throughout it all you will be surrounded by exquisite artworks by Peter Andrew Jeschke that tell stories behind the meaning of the Moon Festival.
