Classical music old and new will be played Tuesday, March 10, at the latest installment of the Columbia Museum of Art’s CMA Chamber Music on Main Series. Muscians in a quartet including a violinist, a violist, a cellist and a piano player, will play four pieces at 7 p.m. in the museum’s DuBose-Poston Reception Hall, following a 6 p.m. happy hour.
The quartet will play three pieces by three 19th century classical giants – Camille Saint-Saens, Antonin Dvorak and Franz Schubert – as well as a 2013 composition by Adam Neiman, a lauded contemporary classical pianist and composer. Neiman will be the piano player in the quartet.
The series is presented about once a month at the museum. Edward Arron, who will play the cello, , serves as artistic director for the series. Violinist Maria Bachmann and violist Hsin-Yun Huang round out the quartet. The musicians often change from performance to performance.
Guests are welcome to arrive at 6 p.m for happy hour. Tickets are $40 for the general public, $30 for members and $5 for students.
