SSC is grateful to the individuals who generously donated the matching funds required as part of this grant.

Concerts

Franz Schubert Schubertiade: The Music of Franz Schubert
April 17, 4 pm, Ellison Center for the Arts, Duxbury, MA

The first Schubertiade events began in early 19th century Vienna, when Schubert aficionados and their friends would come together in parlors and private homes for an intimate concert with stunning performers.  During Schubert's lifetime, these events were generally informal, unadvertised gatherings. While in those years many Schubertiade included the composer's participation, this was not necessary.

While SSC’s Schubertiade performance, which includes Schubert’s famous Trout quintet, may not feature the composer himself, it does include many talented SSC faculty members in an intimate setting.

Featured faculty performers are:

Xixi Zhou and Mark Goodman, piano
Lorna Jane Norris, soprano
Cassie Sulbarán, viola
Sassan Haghighi, cello
Chris Rathbun, bass

Guest violinist Julia Cash performs as well.
