The Bard And Beethoven Featured On Emory Concert Program

Apr 10, 2017

Shakespeare and Beethoven come together on one program Tuesday evening at Emory University's Carlos Museum.

Will Ransom, Artistic Director of the Emory Chamber Music Society of Atlanta, previewed the celebration of the Bard's words and Beethoven's music with guest pianist Julie Coucheron on "City Lights."

Coucheron will perform Beethoven's "Tempest" piano sonata, while Emory's quartet-in-residence, the Vega String Quartet, will perform an early chamber work of Beethoven sometimes compared to Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet." An original Fourth Folio will also be on display, and Emory professor and composer Richard Prior will read from Shakespeare's works throughout the evening's program. 

Tickets and more information are available via the Arts at Emory website.
