Celebrating Schubert—and more

The N.C. Symphony and other artists and partners celebrate Schubert's final year with an ongoing series of events. This week, they include a free masterclass, four concerts and a free lecture. These begin and end at Peace College, where on Wednesday, Nov. 8, the St. Lawrence String Quartet offers a masterclass (open to the public) for ensembles from the Triangle Youth Philharmonic and ECU. This is at 7 p.m. in the school's main auditorium.

On Thursday, Nov. 9, in Chapel Hill's Memorial Hall, and on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 10-11, in Raleigh's Meymandi Concert Hall, the SLSQ teams up with NCS Principal Cello Bonnie Thron for the String Quintet in C, and Ignat Solzhenitsyn leads the orchestra in the "Great" C Major Symphony. Tickets are $22-$37 in Chapel Hill, $28-$49 in Raleigh. Both shows start at 8 p.m. On Sunday, Nov. 12, at 3 p.m., Solzhenitsyn displays his keyboard skills as he joins violinist Soovin Kim and cellist Sophie Shao for both of Schubert's piano trios, which are rarely heard on the same program. The venue is Fletcher Opera Theater, the presenter is the Raleigh Chamber Music Guild, and the tickets are $22 or $8 for students. The Schubert Festival continues with a 7:30 p.m. lecture by Solzhenitsyn at Peace College on Tuesday, Nov. 14.

If Schubert's not your cup of tea, there are other options on this Veteran's Day weekend. The Duke Wind Symphony offers an attractive program under the leadership of David Rockefeller in Baldwin Auditorium on Thursday, Nov. 9. Duke's Collegium Musicum presents music by Monteverdi and two contemporary composers (that's unusual, in and of itself) in the Nelson Music Room on Saturday at 8 p.m. And composer Terry Mizesko's Divertimento for Clarinet and Strings will be premiered by Michael Cyzewski and other N.C. Symphony artists in St. Mary's Chapel on Monday, Nov. 13 at 8 p.m. These concerts are all free.
