Family-Friendly Schubert Concert
Family-Friendly Schubert Concert at the
Dover Public Library on February 23
On Saturday morning, February 23 at 11am, the Dover Public Library will host the second in a series of free classical music concerts featuring live performances of well-known pieces by Austrian composer Franz Schubert (1797—1828). Schubert wrote more than 900 pieces during his short 31-year life and this family-friendly tribute to the composer will include famous pieces such as "Little Rose of the Field", piano music, and the "Trout Quintet". The concert’s length will be just 40-45 minutes, so that children may attend and enjoy the music too. The performers’ goal is to encourage classical music appreciation among all ages.
Performing will be: Soprano Sharon Baker, Sally Wituszynski on viola, Melissa Waterhouse on violin, Gary Hodges on cello, Ken Godel on bass, and Ichiko Harju and Naho Bessho on piano. Please visit our web site for complete information and performer biographies.
