Overview

Step back in time with a screening of Chevalier and follow the extraordinary untold story of Black French maestro Joseph Bologne – the first classical composer of African descent to attain widespread acclaim in Europe. This rousing historical drama shares the life of the gifted composer who wrote pioneering string quartets and helped establish the symmetry and melody of the classical era. This important film puts Bologne, the Chevalier de Saint-Georges, in the middle of the cultural conversation, refuting the idea that classical music was long the sole domain of white European males.

Concessions available for purchase.  

Presented by TD Bank Group through the TD Ready Commitment.
