Two free live streamed concerts with area groups are available online this evening:
Carthage College’s Philharmonic Strings are performing at 7:30 p.m. in the college’s A.F. Siebert Chapel.
All Carthage shows this semester are open for in-person attendance to Carthage students, faculty and staff only. The general public can watch the recital for free online via Carthage’s live stream.
The Carthage Philharmonic, conducted by Professor E. Edward Kawakami, is “a versatile ensemble that performs standard orchestral repertoire and offers opportunities for smaller chamber ensembles working under faculty guidance, such as string ensembles and piano trios,” according to Carthage officials.
Tonight’s concert will feature Tchaikovsky’s “Serenade for Strings in C major, Op. 48.”
The Racine Symphony Orchestra offers a free live stream of its Winter Masterworks Concert at 7:30 tonight.
The performance can be viewed on the group’s YouTube Channel.
This performance includes Wladyslaw Zelenski’s “Piano Quartet in C Minor” and Johannes Brahms’ “Piano Quartet No. 2 in A Major, Op. 26,” both featuring Conductor Pasquale Laurino leading a chamber ensemble of select musicians, with guest artist John Komasa on piano.
The featured soloist is 2020 Artist-in-Residence Joshua Zajac, performing Haydn’s “Cello Concerto in C Major” with a small ensemble of RSO musicians.
A Pre-Concert Conversation will be available at 7 p.m., also on the RSO YouTube Channel. This short presentation will feature Laurino and Komasa discussing various compositional aspects and themes the group continues its celebration of Polish cultural heritage.
Program notes are also available on the symphony’s website, www.racinesymphony.org.
