String Quintets and Quodlibets

A Free In-School Program

Offered During the Week of November 12, 2014

Two violinists, a violist, a cellist, and a bassist from Philharmonia will play a lively selection of string ensemble repertoire on period instruments from the classical and early romantic periods of music. In addition to demonstrating their instruments, the performers will discuss the evolution of string ensemble repertoire and the historic functions this music has served. Students will be invited to actively participate in the performance.



Teachers are encouraged to coordinate with their school colleagues and with neighboring schools to bring interested students to hear this In-School Program.
