Romantic Favorites from Mendelssohn and Chopin Classical Wednesday, August 2, 7 p.m.
Join Strings for a night of summer romance as Laura Albers, Julie Albers, and Wendy Chen play an enchanting program of Kodály Chopin, and Mendelssohn. Begin your evening with a glass of wine in the festival park at a special pre-show event to celebrate summer.
Sisters Julie and Laura Albers reunite on this program in their home state of Colorado. Both musicians grew up in Longmont, CO, and are returning to the festival for the second time in three years to play together. The repertoire includes three of the Romantic period's most famous composers. If you are new to the Romantic period, or if it's your favorite, the concert features repertoire that is complicated, but it is easy to connect with the music.
