December 18th / 5:00 p.m. Liebesfreud has completed the "Beethoven Cycle" and embarks upon another journey through this hallowed ground of the String Quartet canon. This year's pairing will center around the sunny key of A with an early quartet, op. 18 no. 5 and one of the giants of the chamber music solar system, op. 132.
As usual, the performance is the Sunday closest to Mr. Beethoven's birthday and again raises monies - and consciousness - for "Wintershelter", a program of Community OutReach Partnership, a non-sectarian volunteer group that provides direct help to the homeless, hungry, elderly, lonely, or otherwise needy in the city of Philadelphia.
Incidentally, next year (2012) will be our 10th Annual Celebration and Beethoven's Birthday, December 16th, falls on a Sunday - How perfect is that?! So mark your calendars now :>) See the 'Calendar' page for all you need to know and Please Join Us!
