MOUNT VERNON VIRTUOSI CHAMBER ORCHESTRA CONCERTS
A Festive Opening
Sunday, September 8th
11:00 AM Kid-Friendly Family Concert
2:00 PM Adult-Oriented Chamber Music Concert (use Free RSVP button above)
The Bender JCC is pleased to continue our partnership with the The Mount Vernon Virtuosi, to present exciting FREE chamber orchestra programs in the Kreeger Theater for their 2019-2020 season. Peabody Conservatory cello faculty artist Amit Peled has established this chamber orchestra in 2018 to nurture, train and support local graduate music students during their auditions period, offering concerts all across Maryland.
This season the Mount Vernon Virtuosi will perform TWO programs on each of five Sundays. We are thrilled to include a 45-minute morning family concert along with the afternoon concert for adults.
Amit Peled, father of three, says about these special family concerts: “The idea is to have the kids and their families join us on stage for a presentation of 45 minutes. I envision them sitting all around us, participating in the music making, and we truly hope to ignite in them the same love, joy, and excitement we feel while performing.”
They will present a lively program in their season-opening concert with violinist Nikita Borisevich.
- BARBER Adagio for Strings
- VIVALDI “Spring” from the Four Seasons
- MONTGOMERY Strum for String Quartet
- SHOSTAKOVICH Quartet No. 8 in C-Minor, Op. 110
On August 1, we switched to a new, enhanced system for event registration. It’s easy to register! Here’s how:
- The first time that you register for an event in the new system, you will be given the opportunity to create a new account.
- Then, just follow the prompts to register?
- This account for events at the Bender JCC will be different than the new class registration we are rolling out on October 16.
- While they are separate accounts, you are able to use the same email for both.
