Mark Your Calendar: Classical Kaleidoscope Concert
Please join us on Wednesday, January 20, 2010 at 7:15 p.m. in the Library Auditorium for a performance of Shostakovich's Piano Quintet: Before the Outbreak of the War. The beauty of this work lies in the understatement of its power. The piano and string quartet weave its lilting melodies with haunting Slavic harmonies. Composed months before the invasion of Russia by Hitler, it is a jarring counterpoint to the world's events. Following the program you are cordially invited to a meet and speak with the musicians. No reservations are necessary and admission is free. Complimentary coffee by Starbucks.
