Ensemble 1828 has announced changes to their upcoming program for their return performance: they will now be performing works by composers Piazzola, Bernstein, Mendelssohn and Beethoven. (Their previous program plan was for a special Pride Month celebration, with works by queer composers: Higdon, Tchaikovskiiy and Bernstein, but the current shelter-in-place orders have made the rehearsals and programming challenging!)You can get a sample of the ensemble’s music here.
