Mozart & More
Thursday, March 11 at 6:30pm
Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik (A little night music), one of his most recognizable and oft-performed works, is sure to delight in the warm and intimate setting of the Avon Theater. Additionally on the program is Dvorak’s richly dark and sonorous Serenade for Winds.
Piazzolla's Libertango & Grieg's Holberg Suite
Thursday, April 11 at 6:30pm
Hear the Argentinian master, Astor Piazzolla’s Libertango, is an impressively modern take on the Argentinian dance staple: the tango. Piazzolla takes the simple but dramatic genre and infuses it with jazz, chromaticism, and dissonance; taking the listener on a wildly unique ride. Additionally, the audience will be dazzled by Edvard Greig’s Holberg Suite. Composed to celebrate the birth of Ludwig Holberg, Grieg takes on the various dance styles and compositional techniques popular at the time of Holberg’s life.
