The Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra premieres “A Brooklyn Symphony in Six Variations,” a short film directed and produced by musician and Emmy-nominated filmmaker, Susan Abdulezer, on Wednesday, January 24, 2018, at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Downtown Brooklyn as a fundraiser for the organization.

The film spotlights six members of the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra, sharing their stories of how music can unite Brooklynites from all walks of life, and features commentary from BSO Artistic Director Nicholas Armstrong.

In addition to the premiere of the film, there will be food and drinks, with music performed by members of the BSO. Ticket price (and additional donations) beyond $40 are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

The Brooklyn Heights Music Society was founded in 1973 with a mission to foster the enjoyment of the musical arts within the Brooklyn community. As the sponsoring organization for the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra and various chamber ensembles, the Society sponsors concerts in various Brooklyn locations each year.
