[KALLOS in Residence] Concert II: Tell Me A Story!
Time & Location
About the Event
[KALLOS in Residence]
This concert is presented through the New Haven Lawn Club Preservation Trust (501(c)(3)). In partnership with the Trust, Kallos is pleased to make the club its new home in their concert series.
[TELL ME A STORY]
Compelling storytelling involves a deep understanding of human emotions, motivations, and psychology. Kallos’s exciting trio of musicians hopes to broaden the horizon of musical storytelling by exploring five distinct narratives: Gershwin’s first trip to France; a mythological and elusive creature living in air’s labyrinth; a ball hosted by a disapproving brother; a soldier with amnesia; and, closing the concert, a tale of a young lad who makes a deal with the devil.
