Whether you do or you don't have a Valentine, you can enjoy love through classical music. On February 13, go head over heels at Hochstein in a concert titled "Meditations on Love and Roses," featuring works of Debussy, Ravel, Saint-Saëns, Liszt, and more. The performance will be given by Hochstein faculty members Allyn Van Dusen, soprano, Rita George Simmons, flute, and Paula Bobb, piano. An artist reception follows.
On February 15, take in another heart-felt affair when Ad Hoc presents "Of Love Letters and Serenades." The ensemble will project romance through love letters and music, including the "Octet in E-flat major" by Beethoven and "Siegfried Idyll" by Wagner. Boon Hua Lien will conduct. Visit the Ad Hoc website for information on how to submit a love letter to be read and displayed at the concert.
