Featuring Performers from Halcyon Music Festival
Wednesday June 19, 2 - 3 PM
Children, families, and classical music lovers are invited to a very special free performance at the library this month!
On June 19 at 2 PM, performers from Halcyon Music Festival will present a children’s concert consisting of movements from two string quartets. First, be transported to the year 1800 with Beethoven’s Op. 18, No. 4, one of the first quartets the composer ever wrote! Then, hear Janáček’s second quartet, written over a century later, and see if you can hear the differences.The visiting musicians, from institutions like New England Conservatory and New York Philharmonic, will talk about the history of quartets, and answer questions!
This free educational opportunity is a preview of Halcyon Music Festival’s sixth season, starting June 20th at St. John’s Episcopal Church.
