Ensemble Charité will be offering Arnold Schoenberg’s chamber version of Gustav Mahler’s late masterpiece Das Lied von der Erde, conducted by Michelle DeYoung, and featuring Colorado’s own star tenor, Matthew Plenk and mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung.
Ticket proceeds will benefit NEW GENESIS
Michelle DeYoung, Artistic and Executive Director
“Ensemble Charité is a not-for-profit organization with both charitable and musical ambitions. The concept is to perform concerts, most of which I will conduct, of different size ensembles depending on the repertoire, including full chamber orchestra, string quartets, or string chamber orchestras. There will be a mix of professional leadership, and pre-professionals gaining experience. The orchestra and overhead of the performances will be funded by donations. The concerts will take place in the cities of the chosen charity, and will optimize for using local musicians. 100% of the ticket proceeds will go to the charity. Eventually, we would like to have concerts all over the world, raising money for a variety of charitable organizations.”
