The public is invited to special recital of “Musica Viva,” the Central Valley's premiere chamber music ensemble at 7 p.m Thursday, Feb. 26 at Porterville College in Room CA-2.
This program, featuring a string quartet, will play a recital entitled "Sturm und Drang," which many will recognize as the German phrase for "Storm and Stress." With music of Bach, Mozart, Haydn and others, this promises to be a very enlightening program.
The recital is free of charge (a free-will offering to offset the expenses of the performers will be accepted) and is open to the public. Parking passes will not be required during the event.
"Music Viva" founders Susan Doering (violin) and Dieter Wulfhorst (cello) will be joined by violinist Daniel Jang and Claudia Shiuh playing viola. All of these are accomplished, symphony-level performers with a rich resume of large and small ensemble performances.
Room CA-2 provides an intimate setting where you can actually feel how chamber music might have originally been performed (in the small "chambers" of Europe), and being up-close and in contact with the performers can, for many, be a richly rewarding experience.
