Hausmann Quartet: Seven Last Words
Sunday, March 26, 2017, 1 p.m.
Cost: Not available
Age limit: Not available
The Hausmann Quartet and So Say We All are excited to present Seven Last Words, a performance of Joseph Haydn's epic masterpiece alongside spoken word presentations of original works by the authors themselves at Liberty Station's historic North Chapel. The texts will be inspired by the same scripture upon which Haydn based each of the movements of his monumental work,The Seven Last Words of Christ. Originally commissioned for a Good Friday service in 1783, the work was adapted for string quartet by the composer and has since become a treasured Easter-time tradition around the world.
The concert will be open to the public with a name-your-own ticket price, and all proceeds will benefit nonprofits with a local presence, including the San Diego Rescue Mission, Border Angels, the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.
