Hear the Grammy-Award winning ensemble play with the pianist The Observer described as the “definition of virtuosity” one night before they perform it in Carnegie Hall, right here in the Museum’s intimate Bickford Theatre!

In the spring of 2020 when the pandemic took hold and concert venues were closing their doors, the Morris Museum opened its parking lot with The Lot of Strings Festival and jazz concerts. During this festival, the famed Orpheus Chamber Orchestra performed multiple times and a special relationship was born. Now the relationship culminates in an evening featuring the full orchestra and guest soloist, Turkish pianist, Fazil Say.

Say joins the orchestra for two selection—his own Silk Road Piano Concerto No. 2, Op. 4, in which he shares his own musical exploration of the legendary Silk Road and Turkey’s role in this fascinating chapter of history—and Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 in A Major, K. 488, composed in his heyday in Vienna. These selections, chosen very deliberately, are a symbol of reunion and musical friendship; Orpheus and Say last collaborated in 2015 and 2016 Carnegie Hall together, with performances declared to be “all exuberance” by The New York Times.

Upcoming Concerts & Performances


All Vows

A Live Arts World Premiere!

Friday, May 6, 8:00pm; Saturday, May 7, 8:00pm; and Sunday, May 8, 2:00pm

All Vows is a puppet memory play by puppeteer, theatre artist, and writer, Sam Jay Gold, where history and imagination collide in a heartwarming tale. The play is centered on the possibly true life of his grandfather, Poppy, a Russian Jewish refugee raised in China. Poppy is portrayed through five hand-carved, wooden puppets, each modeled after him at a different age in his life.

All Vows was first developed at St. Ann’s Warehouse Puppet Lab with Matt Acheson and Lake Simons as Lab Co-Directors at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, NY, in 2019. Additional development made possible with the generous support of The Jim Henson Foundation.

All Vows was created partially in residence at Live Arts at the Morris Museum.



Tickets: General Admission is $40.00. Member tickets are $35.00. Become a member today. Students' tickets are $25.00 (25 and under with valid ID).
