This provocative piece for strings and percussion opens the concert with the feeling of a tender hymn, then it quickens with an edgy energy. Another vital contribution by our Resident Artistic Catalyst.
Beethoven Violin Concerto

Mussorgsky/Ravel Pictures at an Exhibition

The Newark Museum of Art will curate the artwork projected during the Pictures at an Exhibition performances in Red Bank and Newark.
