Summer Salon: Instrumental Altos-The Viola and English Horn

July 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Violinist and conductor Moby Pearson invites music lovers into his home this summer for a series of evening Summer Salons. The sessions will explore music and musical perspectives and will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. The cost is $25 per session or $60 for three sessions. Call the Brattleboro Music Center at 802-257-4523 to sign up and get directions.

A graduate of Oberlin Conservatory, Pearson has performed with chamber ensembles and orchestras for over 45 years. He has toured the great concert halls in Europe with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and coached student ensembles in the Middle East as a member of the Apple Hill Chamber Players. A teacher, ensemble coach, and String Orchestra conductor at the BMC, Pearson invites you into his home to listen to a vast swath of musical treats and perhaps pick up a few new musical perspectives along the way.

Thursday, July 25 — Instrumental Altos: The Viola and English Horn

Some of the most beautiful solos ever written are scored for these two soulful and melancholy sounding instruments. The session will explore their roles in the symphony orchestra, include chamber music and concerto excerpts, and look back at their ancestral cousins – the viola d’amore and oboe da caccia.
