Dear SchubertTALK Friends,
We have decided to postpone our March 27 Event at the Long Street Studio due to COVID-19, keeping in mind the health of our audience, musicians, families and friends.
Once we know more and can settle on a new Date, we will post it on our website and social media.
We are very disappointed by this but we are sure you understand that we had to come to this decision. Thank you so much for your support and friendship.
All the best,
Listen to the news on any given day and it's easy to get overwhelmed by feelings of fear and hopelessness. Perhaps you feel like this is simply part of living in the 21st century.
But people in earlier centuries also felt overwhelmed, afraid and anxious and they each found ways to cope. Indeed, this need to carry on may very well have given rise to the importance of dance, music and arts. These pursuits help make humans feel a little more connected, hopeful and grounded.
In 19th century Vienna, the composer Franz Schubert and his friends would meet regularly at various homes for intimate gatherings to decompress and lift their spirits. The evenings featured poetry readings, charades and dancing along with performances of Schubert's newest works. They called these events Schubertiades and these festivals -- formal and informal -- are still held in Europe as a way for friends to gather, appreciate some beauty and let off some steam.
Held every few months, SchubertTALK will feature original performances by poets, actors, dancers and other artists accompanied by beautiful, stirring music by Schubert and/or other composers. Spanning many genres of art and music, the goal is to create an uplifting, authentic and hopeful environment -- one that transcends the discord
now prevalent in our society.
