Our 25th anniversary season ended with a burst of excitement as we presented eight extraordinary musicians who performed the works of Richard Strauss, Bartok, and others. The concert’s finale was one of the best loved works in the chamber music repertoire: the extraordinary Mendelssohn Octet. It was a fabulous conclusion to our first quarter century and we thank you!
