Teen, Adult


Event description: This concert will feature a variety of Solomon’s compositions for strings, winds, brass and piano. His eclectic style blends classical, jazz, contemporary, funk, and folk music. The concert will feature the world premiere of “Elul,” a site-specific piece composed for Hempstead House. According to Solomon, this work is “inspired by the custom of sounding the shofar (ram’s horn) as both an inward and a communal wake-up call, exploring our processes for personal and shared reflection in difficult times.”
