In Romantic-era Vienna, the waltz and music from Hungary were the big fads. In America, Latin music is one of our dance party staples. High art and popular culture join hands and step out in this joyful concert of chamber music by Brahms, Johann Strauss Jr., and American composer Kevin Day.
Please join us for Waltz/Samba on Sunday April 16th, 4:00 pm, at the modernist Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond.
The program includes Johann Strauss’ “Blue Danube Waltz,” Kevin Day’s “Ecstatic Samba,” and the famous piano quintet by Johannes Brahms.
Musicians performing on this concert are flutist Mary Boodell, violinists Suliman Tekalli and Brandon Elliott, violist Rachel Yonan, cellist James Wilson, and pianist Terrence Wilson.
