Keuka College will host a Finger Lakes Chamber Music Festival concert Sunday, July15.
The concert, featuring a chamber ensemble from the Manhattan Chamber Orchestra, begins at 7:30p.m. in the College’s Norton Chapel.
Conducted by Richard Auldon Clark, the orchestra’s founder and artistic director, the performance will highlight the beauty and brilliance of Brahms’ Piano Quartet in G Minor, as well as Fauré’s Piano Quartet in C Minor. Tickets for the concert are $25 for adults (free for students), and may be purchased at the door, or by visiting fingerlakes-music.org.
In addition to conducting, Mr. Clark is an active recitalist, chamber musician, and composer. Mr. Clark previously served on the faculty of Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts and the Manhattan School of Music, where he received both a bachelor’s and master’s degrees.
Founded in 1987, the Manhattan Chamber Orchestra performs music of all genres. Dedicated to multicultural, innovative, and exciting programming, the Manhattan Chamber Orchestra has premiered and recorded the music of such composers as William Grant Still, Alec Wilder, Henry Cowell, Eric Ewazen, and Dave Soldier.
