Music@Menlo’s nineteenth season offers nine programs presented over three weekends, three trios of concerts comprising mini-festivals in their own right. The festival’s opening weekend, “Coming Together,” combines timeless classics of the past with voices of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Concert Program I features the world premiere of Patrick Castillo’s Gather for cello and piano, written to commemorate the opening of the Spieker Center for the Arts, Johannes Brahms’s fiery Scherzo “FAE” for violin and piano, and Franz Schubert’s Trout Quintet, penned in a matter of days to be enjoyed at a chamber music soirée.
All concert programs are performed at 4:00 p.m. in the Spieker Center for the Arts, Menlo School, and at 6:00 p.m. outdoors in the Middle School Courtyard of Menlo School. You can also watch via livestream – log in to your account on Music@Menlo’s website to watch here.
