Classical Tuesdays in Old Town Tacoma
February 12, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Classical Tuesdays in Old Town Tacoma is excited to bring The Girsky
String Quartet to Old Town Tacoma. This event is the closing concert of the season for this series of free musical evenings and plans are underway for Classical Tuesdays’
15th season, starting with a Concert in Old Town Park in September 2019.
This evening’s program and a discussion of the role of patronage in the
history of chamber music will feature: Franz Joseph Haydn – Quartet in D
major, Op. 71 No. 2 (from the year 1793); Dmitri Shostakovich – Quartet
No. 10 in A-flat major, Op. 118 (written in 1964); Ludwig van Beethoven –
Quartet No. 8 in E minor, Op. 59 No. 2 (published in 1808). The Girsky
Quartet is an ensemble of stellar string players from Seattle, Los
Angeles, Vashon Island, and Tacoma that is rapidly carving a niche for
itself in the Pacific Northwest.
Free/donations appreciated. All ages welcome.
