Ensemble Charité will collaborate with Cultural Caravan to present Stories in Song, featuring:
Yumi Hwang-Williams – violin, Andrew Krimm – viola, Joshua Halpern – cello, Jeremy Reger – piano
Michelle DeYoung – Mezzo Soprano
100% of ticket proceeds will benefit The Preservery Foundation, a Denver-based nonprofit organization that provides hunger relief to people experiencing homelessness.
“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.” Michelle DeYoung, Artistic and Executive Director
