Academy String Quartet – Dances and Madrigals

March 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


The Westmoreland Symphony presents Academy Concerts: the Academy String Quartet – Jorie Butler-Geyer and Leah Givelber, violins, Warren Davidson, viola, and Cecilia Caughman, cello – in a program to welcome the spring, “Dances and Madrigals”. The “dances” are by contemporary composer Lera Auerbach, her charming Three Dances in the Old Style for violin and cello. The “madrigals” are Three Madrigals for violin and viola, an exhilarating work by the Czech master Bohuslav Martinu. All four musicians join in a great Haydn quartet (aren’t all Haydn quartets great?) from his Opus 64 set and the brilliant quartet in E flat, Opus 12, written by the 19-year old Felix Mendelssohn, still in the springtime of his life.

Admission is free, donations to keep the music going are gratefully received. These concerts are made possible by a grant from Michael J. and Aimee Rusinko Kakos.
