NEW BERN, NC – Feb. 21, 2015

The Carolina Chamber Music Festival concludes its 12th season with a tour de force of colorful classics for strings at the North Carolina History Center. The event begins at 7 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 21, with a preconcert discussion with composer-in-residence, Scott Ordway. Music begins at 7:30 p.m., and a reception in Mattocks Hall will follow the concert.

The concert features Mozart’s Quintet in G minor and Dvorak’s Quintet Op. 97. Artists from the Boston and Dallas Symphonies will also perform Ordway’s “Handshakes,” which chronologically reworks notable music from Hildegard von Bingen through Bartók.
