At 7:30 pm, you have the choice between two premiere string ensembles with roots in Northeast Ohio, performing on two of the area’s premiere concert series.
Over at Plymouth Church under the banner of the Cleveland Chamber Music Society, the Jupiter Quartet will play music by Charles Ives, Florence Price, Steven Andrew Taylor, George Walker, and Johannes Brahms. (ClevelandClassical.com’s Daniel Hathaway will give a 6:30 pre-concert lecture.)
And at Warner Concert Hall, the Oberlin Artist Recital Series will present the Baroque string band ACRONYM in a program titled “Dreams of the Wounded Musketeer” exploring “a military trumpeter’s final moments as he relives the swirling music of his childhood.”
