We have an unadulterated energy boost in store for you to open Left Bank’s ninth season of activities. Come September, we offer a vignette of the next generation of string quartet playing, via the talented and dynamic Aeolus Quartet. We are confident you will agree that future chamber music is in dramatically capable hands. Please join us for this benefit concert in the intimate setting of Jan and Nick Timbers’ beautiful home.
Our final concert next April pays tribute to the distinguished composer George Walker, nonagenarian and still going strong. You will have the chance to celebrate with him as you hear both his String Quartet No. 1 and Poem for Soprano and Chamber Ensemble at this commemorative concert in the Coolidge Auditorium, Library of Congress. The evening will conclude with a performance of Brahms’ heroic String Quintet in G Major, as we attempt to navigate the Library’s Stradivarius instruments (—not as easy as one might think!).
In between, we are delighted to be returning twice to the Smithsonian American Art Museum: works of Britten and Elgar for one concert, and our narrative ‘Cek-Vec-Rok’ collection for the other. And we are excited to take our “Rok” concert to a new venue as well—the CenterStage series of the Community Center in Reston, VA. Join Us.
