The UGA Performing Arts Center will present the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. in Hodgson Concert Hall. The program, Destination Vienna, will feature music by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Arnold Schoenberg and Johannes Brahms.
For centuries, Vienna stood as the cultural center of Europe, a rich melting pot of music, art and literature. The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center will trace the evolution of musical expression in the “city of dreams” through the works of three of its greatest voices with Mozart’s String Quintet in C Minor, Schoenberg’s Verklarte Nacht (Transfigured Night) and Brahms’ String Sextet No. 1.
The CMSLC musicians performing will be violinists Sean Lee and Alexander Sitkovetsky, violists Matthew Lipman and Richard O’Neill, and cellists David Finckel and Keith Robinson.
Tickets, which are $42, can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center, online at pac.uga.edu or by calling the box office at 706-542-4400. UGA students can purchase tickets for $6 with a valid UGA ID, limit one ticket per student.
The concert will be recorded for broadcast on American Public Media’s Performance Today, heard by 1.4 million listeners across the country. Patrick Castillo from CMSLC will give a pre-concert lecture at 2:15 p.m. in Ramsey Concert Hall.
The CMSLC concert will be part of Spotlight on the Arts, a 12-day festival celebrating the arts at UGA.
