Opening Tuesday, December 6, at 8 p.m., continuing on Wednesday at 1 p.m.
1. Dvorak’s String Quintet, Op. 77, a masterpiece that ranges from ravishing to raunchy to flashy. It will be played wonderfully by violinists Micah Naler and Samantha Wong, violist Rachel Neubert, cellist Patrice Young and bassist James Scolamieri.
2. Another masterpiece, Beethoven’s Trio for violin, cello and piano, played with impressive skill and artistry by Micah Naler, Meg Adams and Dawn Foster-Dodson.
3. Lou Harrison’s duo for the unusual (but beautiful) combination of harp and cello, played by Harmony Negrin and Patrice Young.
4. Janacek’s rustic and delightful Moravian Dances played by flutist, Julianne Slate, oboist Francsca Enea, clarinetist Ally Shimkus and bass clarinetist Brenden Buller.
5. A duo for trumpet and trombone by Bach, played by Ross Venneberg and Alexandra Miller. Will it be good? It’s Bach.
6. Pianist Meg Adams and marimbist Stephanie Webster will play a fun, silly Schubert duo and then Faure’s beautiful Pavane.
7. A host of short, gorgeous songs and arias by Brahms, Franck, Handel and Tchaikovsky sung by Hannah Kovach, Stephen Blommer O’Malley, Maria Calderazzo, Angelica Whaley, and Lucas Shimizu. (Tuesday evening only).
