Upcoming concerts in this series:
April 21: Judith Conrad, Forte Piano, and the Delight Consort: lovely late 18th c. genre of music for piano with instrumental accompaniment; works of C.F. Fischer, W. Williams, W.A. Mozart and J.C. Bach
May 5: The Alturas Duo: recognized as one of the most engaging ensembles performing in the chamber music world today. The only group of its kind, the Duo was formed with the idea of playing South American and classical music by bringing together the unusual combination of the viola, charango and guitar, and in doing so, creating passionate music that moves at ease between the Baroque, South American folk rhythms and new pieces written especially for the Duo
