We are thrilled to unveil our Silver Anniversary
I am excited to announce our new season, with concerts on September 13, 2015; January 31, 2016; and May 1, 2016. Our first concert, Spirit of Eastern Europe, will feature music for large and small string ensembles by Kodaly, Smetana, and Enescu. On January 31, we will explore the unique and fascinating chamber music repertoire featuring piano left-hand. Joining us for this concert is internationally celebrated left-hand piano virtuoso Keith Snell. Autobiography and Grandeur is the theme of our May 1 program, with works by Shostakovich and Brahms perfectly illustrating both concepts.
While our central tradition of artistic excellence continues unabated, one important change is coming for ACS. We are delighted to continue our partnership with St. Paul Lutheran Church for one concert every season. A search is now underway for a permanent venue for our remaining concerts. First United Methodist Church and First Unitarian Church will host our September and May concerts, respectively. We greatly appreciate your patience and welcome your input as we embark on this process.
Enjoy the Music!
The board and I wish to thank the leadership and creativity of Arlette Felberg, her family, her family of musicians from coast to coast, her faithful audience, and her amazing donors, for building such a strong and enduring organization. Megan and I are honored and humbled that she has asked us to carry her vision forward into the future.
