Auditorium Chamber Music Series Announces Season Lineup
August 22, 2017
The University of Idaho’s Auditorium Chamber Music Series has brought concerts and educational performances by some of the world’s finest performers to the Palouse for 31 years.
This year’s season continues that tradition with its first performance at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017. The concert, Music from the Palouse, is a biennial traditional featuring local musicians highlighting music from film.
The remaining series schedule is:
Nov. 7, 2017 – Quartetto Gelato: A Canadian ensemble of violin, accordion, cello and oboe that performs a repertoire including classical masterworks, operatic arias, tangos and folk songs.
Jan. 25, 2018 – Ying String Quartet: Classical music performers (violin, viola and cello) who have been performing together for three decades. Believing that concert music can also be a meaningful part of everyday life, the Quartet has performed in workplaces, schools, prisons and the White House.
March 6, 2018 – Calefax Reed Quartet: A close-knit ensemble of five reed players (oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bass clarinet and bassoon) from the Netherlands. Defining themselves as a classical ensemble with a pop mentality, the quartet plays music ranging from 1100 to the present, including many of their own original arrangements.
April 24, 2018 – Horszowski Trio: An ensemble consisting of violin, cello and piano that performs a repertoire spanning the traditional and the contemporary.
All concerts are held at 7:30 p.m. in the University of Idaho’s Administration Building Auditorium.
Tickets for the Auditorium Chamber Music Series, a program in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, are available at BookPeople in downtown Moscow, online at uidaho.edu/class/acms, and at the door prior to each concert at 7 p.m. Individual concert tickets are $25, $20 for seniors ages 65 and older and $10 for students.
