Music for Good “Passions ~ New & Old”
March 1 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Robert Cart (flute) & Regina DiMedio-Marrazza (piano) will explore the music of modern and classic composers who express the exuberance, peace, and romance of their times, in Passions ~ New & Old. This concert in the Music for Good series is presented by the Philadelphia Ethical Society, 1906 Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia 19103. 20% of ticket sales from this concert will be donated to Play on Philly, providing high-quality music education to underserved students.
The program includes works by Lowell Liebermann, César Franck, Eugène Ysaÿe, Henri Vieuxtemps; and Philadelphia composers Eric Sessler and Jennifer Higdon. Higdon has said of the contemplative and moody “Nocturne from String Poetic” that it represents “piece of night-night of peace.” When composing “Sawmill Sunshine,” Sessler had every intention of writing something slow and serious. However, he ended up with a joyful work full of energy and brightly colored lyricism. Eric will join Gina and Robert on March 1st to discuss his work, and Gina, Robert and Eric will appear on “Live from the WRTI Performance Studio” on February 21 to preview this program.
Tickets are $20, $10 students/seniors/PES members, $5 children age 14 & under, and can be reserved online through Brown Paper Tickets: https://rcflute.brownpapertickets.com
