Chopin In March (March 27, 2021) Our guest will be pianist Kati Gleiser performing Chopin’s Piano concerto no. 1 in E minor with our Principal strings. And since it is March there will be marches by Strauss Sr., Schubert and Elgar just to add some Pomp and Circumstances to the occasion.

 

Francois and Friends (May 15, 2021) Things will be as hot as a Habanera as the GBS takes a bite out of Bizet’s Carmen. And Maestro Koh will pick up his guitar as joins various orchestra members in a series of duets. An added bonus will be a virtual composition by composer Dr. Daniel Mehdizadeh commissioned and performed by the GBS.
