Korean Hearts of Vision Chamber Orchestra
Venue: Fairchild Theatre, MSU Auditorium
Cello Plus Chamber Music Festival
The chamber orchestra Hearts of Vision (“the hearts that see”), from South Korea, has given more than 300 concerts worldwide. Consisting entirely of visually impaired musicians who transcribe the scores into Braille, this unique orchestra captivated New York with a concert in Carnegie Hall in 2011 – the first concert by visually impaired musicians in the almost 120 years of that famous venue’s existence. The program includes works by Beethoven, Schönberg, and musical theatre and movie tunes, including those from Gone with the Wind, Les Miserables, Love Story, Schindler’s List.
