Two free summer concerts to be held in the Villard Room of Main Building, July 22 and 29, 2015

Two free concerts will be performed in Vassar College’s Villard Room this summer.

On Wednesday, July 22, 8:00pm, piano faculty member Thomas Sauer will perform works by Beethoven, Robert Schumann, Darius Milhaud, and Thomas Adès. Sauer will be accompanied by Todd Palmer, clarinet; Grace Park, violin; Dov Scheindlin, viola; and Wolfram Koessel, cello. The concert program is mixed, featuring a solo, duo, trio, and two quartets--something for everyone.

On Wednesday, July 29, 8:00pm, the renowned Richard Wilson, Professor of Music on the Mary Conover Mellon Chair, will perform with violinist Joseph Genauldi. Their concert will feature Beethoven and Mozart sonatas as well as an original work by Wilson, “Three Interludes for Violin and Piano.”

Admission to the concerts is free. Please note both shows will be held in the Villard Room on the second floor of Main Building while the usual concert venue, Skinner Hall, is under renovation.
