Liebesfreud rehearsals are under way for our "Last Fridays" 10th Anniversary concert on January 29th.
(The first program in 2006 was on the occasion of Mozart's 250th "birthday". )
And the upcoming program, on January 29th, will be our 75th!
Schubert's wondrous and largest scale chamber music work, the Octet, is featured.
In addition to the "usual suspects", joining are all old friends: Miles Blazer Davis, Principal Bass, Orchestra of Opera Philadelphia - Kathryn Mehrtens, French Horn with the Pennsylvania Ballet Orchestra - Mark Gigliotti, co-Principal Bassoon, Philadelphia Orchestra - and traveling from half the world away, Wei-Leng William Chen, former Principal Clarinet with the Taipei Symphony Orchestra.
This concert will be a benefit for the Philadelphia Art Alliance which has been our longtime collaborator in presenting this free "Last Fridays" series.
