Wednesday, August 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT$10.00 – $40.00
The 6th Annual NEXUS Chamber Music Festival celebrates the relationship between classical music and dance with a program of hand-clapping, foot-stomping works. NEXUS Co-Artistic Directors Brian Hong and Alexander Hersh will join violinists Alex Gonzalez and Claire Bourg, guitarist Hao (Rachel) Yang, and pianist Winston Choi for what promises to be a fun and raucous evening. Get tickets now.
The program features two works for guitar and string quartet: Luigi Boccherini’s flamenco-inspired Guitar Quintet No. 4, and Aaron Jay Kernis’ K-Tel ad-inspired 100 Dance Hits. Amy Beach’s Piano Trio of 1938 and Eleanor Alberga’s Wild Blue Yonder complete the program. The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the artists.
