Strings Music Festival began with only classical concerts, so it’s not surprising that some of our patron’s favorite memories are about classical pieces:
“Rhapsody in Blue”
“The beauty of Haydn’s “Gyspsy” Trio, Poco adagio, cantabile. Tears streamed down my face – I had to sniffle during the trills.” -Susan Davis
“The orchestra performances.”
“Performing “A Soldiers Tale” by Stravinsky with Andres Cárdénes on the violin, leading and Verne Lundquist as the narrator.” -Joe Williams
“This year’s full symphony orchestra performances and the Mendelssohn piece four years ago.”
“The chamber music, loved it!”
Classical music remains an important part of Strings programming with concerts every Wednesday and Saturday night during the summer festival season. Which composers would you most like to hear at Strings? Leave your comments below.
