On Sunday April 17 at 2:00 PM, the Music Branch proudly presents a spring-themed chamber music concert inspired by nature.
Flutist Sarah Wass and pianist Traci Esslinger have put together a beguiling program, including works by such well-known composers as Vivaldi, Schubert, and Messiaen, whose music pays tribute to birds, flowers, and stars. Add to this some contemporary works by Gubaidulina and Schocker with their reflections on trees and gardens.
