Summer 2016 Concert Schedule

July 2016
Jul 7 (Thu) 8:00pm Chamber Music of Mendelssohn

A concert of chamber music by Mendelssohn and Vincent Persichetti, given by pianist and Vassar faculty member Thomas Sauer with guests Sunghae Anna Lim, violin, Rose Hashimoto, viola, and Clancy Newman, cello.  Featuring the rarely-played Piano Quartet in B Minor by Mendelssohn, a meditation for viola and piano on the Virgin Mary by Persichetti, and the ever popular Trio in D Minor by Mendelssohn.

Jul 12 (Tue) 8:00pm Mano a Mano

Hailing from Cuba, this dynamic new vocal group visits Vassar on its first ever cultural tour to the United States. The program will include a variety of pieces ranging from a Cuban Orisha spiritual, to a medley of iconic American Soul. An unique musical journey from the point of view of Cuba’s young generation - and perhaps a glimpse into a changing Cuba.
