Concertante chamber ensemble in BYU concert Feb. 24

The Brigham Young University School of Music presents special guest artists Concertante in concert Tuesday, Feb. 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

Tickets at $9 and $3 off with a BYU or student ID are available through the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 378-4322 or at www.byu.edu/hfac.

Concertante, a repertory ensemble dedicated to performing chamber music, will feature Xiao-Dong Wang, Ara Gregorian, Ittai Shapiro and Matilda Kaul on violin; Danielle Farina on viola; and Rachel Shapiro, Alexis Pia Gerlach and Sophie Shao on cello.

Concertante was founded in 1995 by a group of Juilliard School graduates intent on pursuing their musical collaboration beyond graduation. The ensemble performs a wide repertoire ranging from quintets by established masters to less commonly performed works, as well as new works by living composers.

The program will include Two Pieces for String Octet, Op. 11 by Shostakovich, the Octet in C Major, Op. 7 by Enesco and Octet for Strings in E-flat major, Op. 20 by Mendelssohn.

Concertante is the resident chamber music ensemble of the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts in Harrisburg, Pa.
