NEPP flautist Pat Zuber and violist Chris Souza are joined by soprano Jamie Jordan and harpist Frances Duffy for a riot of intoxicating and seductive sounds. Along with two Impressionist masterpieces—Ravel’s Flute enchantée and Debussy’s Sonata for Flute, Viola, and Harp—the ensemble will treat you to music of Gabriel Fauré, who died one hundred years ago this year. This feast of French delicacies is accompanied by works of American composers George Crumb, John Corigliano, and Sakari Dixon Vanderveer.

Chamber 2 Has Been Cancelled - Check back for a rescheduled date
Violinist Sasha Margolis teams up with lutenist/guitarist Michael Leopold for a highly eclectic program full of nostalgia, virtuosity, and humor. With Leopold playing the picturesque lute known as the theorbo, the pair move from austerely expressive sonatas from early 1600s Italy to soulful folksongs and whirlwind dances from lost Jewish worlds of Eastern Europe. To round things out, there will even be some 1950s-style French jazz—and a little singing.
This performance will be rescheduled
