Festival Series

Festival Series Chamber Music Concerts

Since 1979, the USCB Festival Series has presented internationally renowned artists, such as pianists Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Jeremy Denk, violinists Joshua Bell and Robert McDuffie, flautist Paula Robison, cellist Carter Brey, and the Brooklyn Rider, Emerson, Tokyo and St. Lawrence Quartets. 

With Charles Wadsworth, credited by many with reviving interest in chamber music at Lincoln Center and at Spoleto Festivals in Italy and Charleston, and Edward Arron, director of the amazingly popular and  critically acclaimed New York Metropolitan Museum chamber series for the past decade, the quality of the musical selections and the talents of the artists have surprised and delighted audiences, who come from throughout the region.

For the enjoyment of everyone, please be advised that these concerts are not suitable for infants and young children. Admission is at the discretion of the management.

 Brooklyn Rider

Join us on Sunday, December 11th for the return of the internationally acclaimed Brooklyn Rider  –  Johnny Gandelsman, violin, Colin Jacobsen, violin, Nicholas Cords, viola, Michael Nicolas, cello—to the USCB chamber music series.   Hailed as “the future of chamber music” by Strings, Brooklyn Rider offers an eclectic repertoire in gripping performances that attract a cross-section of fans and draw rave reviews from classical, world and rock critics alike.
 
The quartet will be joined by Festival Series host and cellist Edward Arron. The program’s pieces will include compositions from 1789 to 2015.  The evening will be a grand opening for the holidays.
