This concert explores National-romanticism; a movement where an awareness of cultural heritage and folk-expression blends with the refinement of “high art”. We will trace this concept through several localities on their way to the ultimate immigrant nation of the United States. The focal point of the performance is the complete rendition of the rarely heard Quintet by Zdenek Fibich; a perfect example of a Czech composer using the classical forms combined with the nostalgia of melodies and harmonies from his homeland. Light refreshments will be provided. Presented by CITH co-founders Violinist Monica Bauchwitz and Hornist Karl Kramer; Clarinetist Alan Kay; Cellist Louise Dubin; and Pianist Spencer Myer.
Tickets are $35 per person, $30 for members, $17.50 for students, and FREE for children 12 and under.
