American Romanian Festival

Sunday, September 26, 7:30–11 p.m.
$10 in advance through or cash or check at the door.

To close the Fourth Annual American Romanian Festival UMMA will host a wonderful evening of chamber music featuring Ann Arbor and Detroit based artists performing works by composers George Enescu and Robert Schumann. Soprano Jennifer Goltz and pianist Larisa Simington will open the concert with two exquisite and unique sets of songs Enescu set to French poets Fernand Gregh (1873–1960) and Clement Marot (1496–1544). These songs, as well as Enescu's second cello sonata The Weed, evoke Romanian folk music traditions. The concert will conclude with the beautiful Piano Quartet of Robert Schumann, celebrating the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth, performed by UM Piano Professor Christopher Harding and DSO Musicians Marian Tanau, violin, Jim Van Valkenburg, viola, and Marcy Chanteaux, cello.

This event is sponsored by the Michigan Arts Council and Cultural Affairs, National Endowment for the Arts, University of Michigan Museum of Art, the Center for Russian and East European Studies, and the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance.
