Encore Performance of “Soundings: One Red Rose” by Steven Mackey
November 24, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The Nasher Sculpture Center will present an encore performance of its commemorative Soundings concert, One Red Rose, on the seventh floor of The Sixth Floor Museum. One Red Rose was written by internationally renowned composer Steven Mackey for the Brentano String Quartet in honor of the anniversary of President Kennedy’s death. It was commissioned by the Nasher with Carnegie Hall (New York, NY) and Yellow Barn (Putney, VT). A discussion with the audience will follow. The title of the piece comes from a blood-soaked red rose that had fallen from the bouquet that former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy had been carrying.
