Classical Music For Everyone: Baroque Era
The Hudson Library & Historical Society is pleased to offer the new Classical Music for Everyone series with the Akron Symphony Orchestra, a series of free concerts and educational programs designed to engage and education all ages on the form and history of Classical Music.
In collaboration with the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Library is hosting a yearlong series of concerts featuring Akron Symphony players in trios and quartets performing music from the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic and 20th century eras.
The series returns on November 4 at 2 p.m. with a presentation on the Baroque Era of music. Learn about the characteristics of Baroque music and Baroque performance practice, the development of the trio sonata (a major chamber music genre in the Baroque era), and get an introduction to the harpsichord.
Works to be performed include Trio Sonata Op. 3 No. 2 in D major by Arcangelo Corelli, Trio Sonata Op. 4 No. 4 in F major by Jean-Marie Leclair, and Trio Sonata in E minor TWV by Georg Phllipp Telemann. Akron Symphony performers include violinists Linda Johnston and Amy Glick, cellist Christina Rosser and Robert Mollard on the harpsichord.
The series will continue in 2019.
All ages are welcome. No registration is required. For more information, please call 330.653.6658, ext. 1010 or visit hudsonlibrary.org.
