March 12 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm

No other composer was able to combine the jazz music of the time with classical music like George Gershwin. Three Preludes is a brilliant arrangement by violist Martin Stegner of Gershwin’s short piano pieces – charming, melodic and captivating.

Barber’s String Quartet op. 11 was written in 1936 when Barber was a mere 26 years old. The centerpiece of the quartet is the extraordinary “Adagio” which has been famously transcribed as an independent piece for string orchestra, featuring a universal blend of sorrow, hope and beauty.

Gina Gillie’s Scenes from the Bayou is a collection of short programmatic movements that portray various times of the day, animals and scenery at the lush Black Bayou Lake National Wildlife Refuge in Louisiana.
