“An AMERICAN AFFAIR”

A tribute to great American "classical" music featuring works by Amy Beach, William Grant Still, Aaron Copland, and fantastic arrangements of Bernstein's "West Side Story" and Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue"

January 4-5, 2019

We plan to start 2020 off with a bang with this very exciting program of great American music featuring the fabulous internationally renowned violinist Timothy Schwarz.  Tim and I were the 1996 U.S. Artistic Ambassadors which resulted in a two month tour of the Middle East and Southeast Asia, where we performed American music in eleven different countries.  As the State Dept. later wrote of the tour: “Schwarz and Weiser bring incredible passion, virtuosity, and excitement to all their programs.”  This program will include some fantastic music by Amy Beach, William Grant Still, and Aaron Copland, along with great arrangements of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Bernstein’s West Side Story.  You will not want to miss it!

Check out a recording of the St. Louis Blues by the Duo:
