Description

Join us as we open our 24th season with a showcase for the warm tones of clarinet, french horn and viola. We begin with Mozart’s charming Horn Quintet, a unique work with two violas replacing the traditional two violins, followed by the rare opportunity to hear a composer performing her own work with violist Jessica Meyer’s plaintive duo with cello. Our opening night celebration concludes with the high romanticism and bold drama of the Dohnanyi Sextet.
