N.C. Symphony ensemble to play free concert

Posted April 9, 2011

A quick note to share some details on a free concert offered by the N.C. Symphony and Peace College on Monday.

I think this would be a great event for older kid and teen musicians, especially those focused on classical music. At 7:30 p.m. Monday, the Manning Chamber Music Series will feature works by Mozart and Reinecke. The concert is at Kenan Auditorium at Raleigh's Peace College, 15 E. Peace St.

Here's what a release said about the event: "North Carolina Symphony musicians Melanie Wilsden, oboe; Michael Cyzewski, clarinet; Christopher Caudill, horn; Rachel Niketopoulos, horn; and Victor Benedict, bassoon, are joined by pianist Milton Ruben Laufer for Mozart’s Quintet for Piano and Winds in E-flat Major, K.452, which Mozart described as “the best thing I have written in my life” in a letter to his father shortly after the piece’s premiere in 1784; admittedly, most of his operas were still ahead of him. The ensemble follows the Classical-era masterwork with Carl Reinecke’s celebrated Trio for Piano, Oboe and Horn in A minor."

The music series brings together musicians from the symphony and Peace College faculty for small ensemble music. The concerts are presented free throughout the year.
