Wednesday, July 29 – Celebrate Beethoven’s 250th Anniversary With Us
We are excited to kick-off the festival with a celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birth year. Each Beethoven selection will be introduced by a Bach dance – solo pieces highlighting the virtuosity of each musician. Much as Bach is remembered for the Goldberg Variations, Beethoven’s Archduke Trio will delight and amaze you.
The Tempest Trio
