7:30 pm Ford Hall, Ithaca College
Pre-concert Chat begins 6:45pm
Audience members were so thrilled by recent solo performances by our concertmaster and cellist Steven Doane, that we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to bring them together for this powerful Double Concerto by Brahms. And in another dynamic pairing, we’ll present Bach’s iconic Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 with Hartke’s 2006 composition that was inspired by the Bach work.
Be sure to arrive early at 6:45pm for the Pre-Concert Chat. It’s a great opportunity to learn a bit about the program and hear thoughts from our soloists and conductor.
SPECIAL BONUS! A masterclass with Steven Doane will be held Friday, November 2nd from 2-4pm on the campus of Cornell University. Complete details will be posted shortly. Free admission, no tickets or reservations required. The performers will be high school and college students, so this is an especially wonderful opportunity for music students to see a renown artist at work as an instructor.
