For its annual Five-Borough Tour, the Orchestra of St. Luke’s performs chamber music by a group of living composers who write with wonderment about the earth and its origins; concern for its survival; and hope and purpose for its future.

This program is connected to a movement initiated by the Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music, featuring composers from this community who “message a future that is just and green, again and again, to hasten cultural acceptance of the hard realities facing us all.”
