The Beare’s Premiere Music Festival comes to its sublime conclusion with Mendelssohn’s adored Octet as you have never heard it before.  Performed off the composer’s original manuscript, the performance will include 100 bars of original music that was omitted from the printed score.  Masters of source interpretation, the Borromeo Quartet, will be joined on stage by festival musicians for an evening of music making as intellectually stimulating as it is emotionally rich.

EVENT TIME CHANGE: Please note that this concert will start at 7:30pm (originally scheduled for 8pm)
