Concordia College presents the 18th season of the Hoch Chamber Music Series with The Emerson String Quartet, widely regarded as one of the world’s premier chamber music ensembles. The Emersons will play Schumann from their recent recording release of the composer's three string quartets. The 30-minute concert was recorded at Sommer Center and will be broadcast to ticket holders on November 14th at 7:00 pm.
The artistic power of Schumann, whose life was dominated by alternating periods of depression and manic creativity, seems particularly fitting during the uncertain times of a global pandemic. We invite you to take a break to relax and explore from your room, your home, your computer.
