According to violinist Joseph Maile, there will not be a string quartet performance at 4 p.m. today in Elizabeth S. Lenna Hall — there will be story time.
With more than seven decades of history, the Chautauqua Quartet is an institution of its own.
This weekend, the Chautauqua Inter-arts Collaboration will cram the spilled blood, soaring melodies, brutal battles and undying hope of 500 years of history and American-inspired artistic expression into a neatly packaged show.
On Saturday at 8:15 p.m. in the Amphitheater, Muffitt will conduct both the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra and five students from the MSFO in this season’s inter-arts collaboration of Go West!
At 4:15 p.m. today at the Hall of Christ, three Young Artists will be honoring this amalgam with a melting pot of art songs. From the Czech countryside to the streets of Manhattan, the artists will span a worldwide breadth of music, from the Old World to the New.
Almita Vamos is keeping it in the family for the first faculty recital of the season.
The renowned violinist and School of Music faculty member will join her husband, sister, daughter-in-law and student at 4 p.m. Sunday in Elizabeth S. Lenna Hall to perform three pieces.
First, they will perform a piece by Mozart. Unlike the original version, though, Vamos’ piece has been rearranged for two violins and a viola.
