HSO Musicians Present Informal MusicLincs

The Hartford Symphony Orchestra’s 2009-2010 MusicLincs Series brings classical music to unexpected places.

Musicians will travel to different locations around the state to present four diverse and interactive programs combining music with other artistic disciplines, often for little to no admission charge.

Cello Quartet Open Rehearsal at Real Art Ways
HSO Cellists Jeffrey Krieger, Eric Dahlin, Peter Zay, and Jennifer Combs will open one of their rehearsals to the public at Real Art Ways on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 7 pm. The audience will witness the speed bumps and errors that are all part of a real rehearsal and will be able to ask questions, offer suggestions, and make comments as the rehearsal progresses. The program will feature an original piece of music by Michael Gatonska.

A Piacere String Quartet “Tells A Story” at the CT Science CenterOn Saturday, Nov.21 at 11 am “A Piacere” String Quartet comprised of HSO violinists Jaroslaw Lis and Karin Fagerburg, violist Michael Wheeler and cellist Eric Dahlin – will travel to the Connecticut Science Center for an entertaining look at how music can tell a story. This program will invite the audience to interact with the musicians as well as use its imagination to create scenes and characters as the ensemble performs music from Vivaldi to Shostakovich.

Music and Poetry with the HSO Piano Quartet at NBMAA
Poetry has long been an inspiration for composers. On Saturday, Nov. 28 at 3pm at the New Britain Museum of American Art, HSO musicians Anhared Stowe, Michael Wheeler, Peter Zay and Ruriko Wheeler will explore music that has a direct connection to the spoken word. This program will feature “Letters to the World,” a piece based on five poems by Emily Dickenson as musically interpreted by Connecticut born, Vermont-based composer Gwyneth Walker.

Home for the Holidays with the Chimera String Quartet
The Hartford Symphony Orchestra Chimera String Quartet featuring violinists Martha Kayser and Deborah Tyler, violist Sharon Dennison and cellist Jeffrey Krieger will “deck the halls” of the New Britain Museum of American Art on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 1 pm as they perform holiday carols and seasonal favorites.
