Friday Intimate Concerts take place in a stylish home-the preferred up-close and personal setting for chamber music—the original party music. Each concert is followed by a scrumptious reception along with an exclusive ‘back-stage-pass’ accessibility to the artists. The scene is festive and fun, and the music is to die for. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry… and we’ll do it all together. Very close together.
Tickets: $60 per person
Directions to the concert will be emailed to all ticket holders the week of the concert.
More about these artists
“Inner Voices” comes alive with the aid of the award-winning Aeolus Quartet and the piano skills of artistic director Dr. Michelle Schumann. The evening begins with Giacomo Puccini’s Chrysanthemums, a dynamic piece that expands and shrinks, welding the instruments’ melodies into minor-key harmonies that then fray down separate paths. The deft fingers of the solo violinist achieve startling velocities during Jean Sibelius’s Voces Intimae, which soars into thin, lofty octaves before falling to earth for resonant, warmer tones. Lastly, Graham Reynolds adapts his 2009 ballet, Cult of Color, for the quintet, which is tasked with conveying the percussive series of stormy, rock-reminiscent sound mountains.
