Music For Good
The Philadelphia Ethical Society presents classical guitarist Aaron Larget-Caplan in his Philadelphia debut for their new series "Music for Good." Each concert in the series gives 20% of the ticket sales to a charity chosen by the artist. HIAS is the charity Mr. Larget-Caplan chose for this special concert.
Larget-Caplan's program 'Transformations' explores the many ways in which music transforms us as listeners and performers, as well as be transformed through instrument presentation. Transformations of people through migrations, chosen and forced, is a central thinking point of the program and allows us to reflect on the important issue.
Performing preludes and landscapes by J.S. Bach and John Cage, Spanish dances, New Lullabies written for him by Stephanie Ann Boyd and Thomas Schuttenhelm, Japanese myths by Keigo Fujii, and Russian paintings by Mussorgsky, Aaron Larget-Caplan explores the many emotions and states of being of music through myths, change, and ideas. The concert includes Philadelphia premieres by Boyd, Cage, and Schuttenhelm.
