The Athenaeum is pleased to continue the 2019-2020 season of the Barbara & William Karatz Chamber Series. Enjoy chamber music as it was intended–in a warm, intimate setting, where you are treated as a guest in our historic home. All concerts are followed by a private reception with the artists.
The award-winning Vera Quartet is the String Quartet in Residence at the Curtis Institute of Music. They will play a composition written for their tour by David Hertzberg, a young American composer whose operatic music has been compared to Puccini and Strauss. His opera, “The Wake World,” won the 2018 Music Critics Association of North America’s Best New Opera Award.
Meng-Chieh Lu will join the Vera Quartet to perform Franck’s explosive Piano Quintet, a pinnacle of French Romantic chamber music.
See our website for more details and the planned program for the evening.
The price for the concert is: $40 member / $45 nonmember
