WCA Brown Bag Concert: Lyric Arts Trio
Brahms and Friends
Westport Center for the Arts Brown Bag Concert Series
Johannes Brahms is one of the Big Three “B” composers of classical music (alongside Bach and Beethoven).
The Lyric Arts Trio (Sarah Tannehill Anderson, soprano; Elena Lence Talley, clarinet; Dan Velicer, piano) will present a delightful concert of outstanding chamber music of Brahms and his friends and colleagues. The ensemble will perform new custom arrangements of lovely lieder of Clara Schumann, Gustav Jenner (Brahms’ only pupil), and Antonin Dvorak, as well as a selection from one of Brahms’ justly-famous clarinet sonatas and the beloved Intermezzo in A, op. 118, No. 2. The concert will close with a sparkling trio arrangement of Johann Strauss Jr.’s “Voices of Spring” Waltz.
Presented Free, Donations Welcomed. Bring a lunch, if you wish.
Reception to Follow with Coffee and Refreshments hosted by Westport Coffee House and friends of WCA.
