About the Concert

Concert 2 of this three-part concert series partners the romantic harmonies of Johannes Brahms and Robert Schumann with rich contemporary works by Lori Laitman and John Harbison.  To conclude this program the ensemble breaks from tradition, presenting a medley of light opera works by Stephen Sondheim!

"Who loves not woman, wine and song, remains a fool his whole life long" is actually an English translation of a Martin Luther quote. Who knew that? And what could be more fun to sing about? If you've never been to a Fourth Coast parlor concert, the wine is poured, the women (and men) sing, and the songs flow! You get the chance to relax, enjoy the architecture of an inviting home, and savor a moment of harmony.
