Season Guest: Sarasa Ensemble—Take Four!
May 12 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Sarasa Ensemble returns to the BMC Friday, May 12. The Season Guest concert, set for 7 p.m. at the BMC, is “Take Four! Music for Cello Quartet.” With a tip of the hat to Dave Brubeck’s famous ground-breaking hit, “Take Five,” Sarasa brings the lush sound of the cello to the fore in music arranged and written for four cellos.
It will feature a wide range of eras and styles, from Josquin des Prez to J.S. Bach to Beethoven to Wagner to Fauré and Brubeck (arranged by Eugene Friesen). Performers will include Jake Charkey, Myron Lutzke, Timothy Merton and Jennifer Morsches.
Advance tickets for the 7 p.m. concert on Friday, May 12, are $20 general admission, and $25 at the door. For tickets or more information, contact the BMC at 802-257-4523, email email@example.com or visit the BMC website at bmcvt.org.
