About the Concert

Winds, brass, percussion, and strings come together for a program ranging from lush and emotional to comic and exuberant! Two movements of Dvořák's Czech-flavored Tenth String Quartet are paired with a Septet for winds, strings, and trumpet by Polish-born French composer Alexandre Tansman. The evening closes with highlights from Walton's rollicking Façade, a collection of poems by Edith Sitwell spoken to eclectic music inspired by everything from popular song to grand opera to jazz.

This is a free concert in the beautiful, intimate setting of Christ Episcopal Church in Columbia. Donations in support of the series are gladly accepted.
