    TWO RIVERS STRING QUARTET CONCERT
    January 13, 2018

    The Friends of Music will present the third concert of their 2017-2018 season on Saturday, January 13.

    The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church in Shepherdstown. It will feature the Two Rivers String Quartet.

    The concert program is entitled "Contrasting Passions." It will include two works:

    • Bedřich Smetana (1824-1884) — String Quartet No. 1 in E minor

    • Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) — String Quartet No. 4 in E minor, Op. 44, No. 2.

    Jed Gaylin, the Music Director of Friends of Music, says both works show great passion but their styles are very different. He says the Mendelssohn piece is "virtuosic, fleet, and intense, with moments, such as the final chorale, of magnificent serenity." On the other hand, he says, Smetana's quartet "is earthy, rooted in Slavic folk music traditions."

    Admission to the concert will be free for Friends of Music members. The ticket price for others will be $20 per person ($18 before December 31).

    Tickets can be purchased on the Friends' website at www.friendswv.org or by mail (FOM, PO Box 220, Shepherdstown, WV 25443). Visa and Master Card will be accepted.
    If there is snow that makes travel difficult on January 13, the concert will be rescheduled to January 20.

    The Friends of Music is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1999 to support and promote musical excellence in the region. For full information about the Friends and their concerts go to www.friendswv.org.
