Heifetz Ensemble In Residence (HEIR) – The Spring Eternal Concert Series – VIII: Old Delights & New Discoveries
May 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Our Blackburn series continues a perennial favorite by Mozart, the unsung brilliance of Bach’s oldest son, an infectious new quartet by a Jamaican composer, and culminates with a performance of Bratislava-born Ernst von Dohnanyi’s powerful piano quintet – his debut work written when he was just 18!
We are thrilled to open the curtain and present live concert music once again in Staunton at the The Blackburn Inn & Conference Center’s Great Hall with this safe and socially-distant series.
There are two ways to enjoy the program:
*Limited Capacity: 50 attendees*
General Admission: $20
“Quartet” (Table for Four): $70
Suggested Donation: $10
