SONGS WITHOUT WORDS

Music's Recreation presents its first concert of the season on Sunday, Nov. 20, at 2:00 p.m. in the Martha Hamblin Hall, 3rd-floor performance space of the Community School of Music and the Arts.
Our concert will be an exploration of the lyrical gifts that composers have given to instrumentalists through the ages. The program features instrumental music that was originally sung, or sounds as if it could have been. Good, strong melody, like good, strong coffee, doesn't always need anything added. Works by Fanny Mendelssohn, Felix Mendelssohn, Copland, Villa-Lobos, Rachmaninoff, Chopin and Bach. Performers include flutists Laura Campbell and Beth Kelly, clarinetist John Greenly, violinist William Hurley, cellist Elisa Evett, pianists Karen Melamed Smith, Rozalind Feinstein and and William Cowdery, and guitarist Matthew Ocone.
November 20, 2016,2:00pm Martha Hamblin Hall, 3rd Floor Community School of Music and Arts 330 East Martin Luther King Jr / State St Ithaca, NY 14850. Tickets available at the door: $10/person $24/family.
