Concerts from the Library of Congress, 2013-2014

MAY 2 at 8 PM

Dr. Serge Koussevitzky and Leonard Bernstein

This special concert celebrates the merger of the two Serge Koussevitzky Foundations into a single entity housed at the Library of Congress.

National Chamber Music Month

Coolidge Auditorium

Serge Koussevitzky championed the music of his time throughout his career, and the Foundation established in his name has continued to support the music of living composers since his death in 1951. Curated by Koussevitzky Board members Ursula Oppens and Fred Sherry, this evening’s concert includes works by an august sampling of composers who have received the Foundation’s assistance. Featuring top artists with deep connections to this music, the concert honors the Koussevitzky legacy in the most appropriate way—by bringing this repertoire to life in the concert hall. This special concert celebrates the merger of the two Serge Koussevitzky Foundations into a single entity housed at the Library of Congress.
