Masterpieces for Eight

Mendelssohn’s brilliant octet exhibits the teenage composer’s youthful exuberance, while Schubert’s expansive work is both a nod to forms of the past and a showcase of his own unique style.

A pre-concert lecture with Michael Parloff will take place in the Rose Studio prior to both performances. Click here to learn more and buy tickets.
