This program features three great composers who lived and worked in Worcester. Dvorak’s stirring Bass Quintet, Sedgwick’s visionary Theme and Variations for String Quartet and a few beloved Cole Porter songs are offset by the riches of Schulhoff’s Trio for Flute, Viola, and Bass. We proudly herald the musical inspirations that come from and flow through Worcester, our beloved city.
Sponsored by the Worcester Historical Museum in conjunction with their exhibit “Worcester in 50 Objects” celebrating the 140th anniversary of the Worcester Historical Museum, October 27, 2016 – March 11, 2017.
