Chelsea Music Festival
We are thrilled to announce our 2021 live virtual Festival, titled Weaving the Moment this June 25th & 26th, 2021.
In a moment where the fabric of society is addressing its colors, its needs, and its many-layered stories, we join the call to weave these threads in inspiring collaborations that honor the unique creativity of each contributor. Textiles and quilts are historically made of pieces that come from different parts of time, of place, and often of loss. Together, these pieces form a unified work that brings strength, perseverance and comfort. In that spirit of hope and resilience, we are delighted to present to you Weaving the Moment.
