Mansions & Music Prelude: An Afternoon of String Quartets
Join the Pasadena String Quartet for an exclusive preview of their upcoming Mansions & Music concert, featuring Italian Serenade by Hugo Wolf and String Quartet in B-Flat Major, Op. 67 by Johannes Brahms.
From 7 to 7:30 p.m., enjoy a wine and cheese reception in Kelly Library, followed by the prelude – part open rehearsal, part lecture-demonstration – in Barrett Hall. Members of the quartet will share insights into the pieces, offer historical context, and offer biographical background on the composers. A nightcap in Kelly Library concludes the evening.

“We always very much enjoy Mansion Preludes. They greatly enhance our appreciation of the coming concerts. Even if we can’t make the concerts, the Preludes are worthwhile. They’re not to be missed!”
– Marilyn and George Brumder
