AmiciMusic is a chamber music organization based in Asheville, NC and Baltimore, MD, dedicated to performing the highest quality chamber music in intimate venues and non-traditional spaces. We are committed to breaking down barriers between performers and audiences by setting up a more relaxed and informal atmosphere at concerts and through informative talks about each composer’s life before each piece is played.
Fantastic music by Gershwin, Arlen, Rodgers, Bernstein, Sondheim, Webber, and more
January 17, 2021
Join AmiciMusic for this very fun program exploring the history of Broadway songs from the 1920s to the 1980s. Artistic Director and pianist Daniel Weiser will be joined by violinist Timothy Schwarz to perform some fantastic arrangements of your favorite Broadway songs by Gershwin, Rodgers, Sondheim, Bernstein, Webber and more including “Over the Rainbow,” “Send in the Clowns,” “Some Enchanted Evening,” and “Memory”. Schwarz and Weiser were the 1996 U.S. Artistic Ambassadors which resulted in a two month tour of the Middle East and Southeast Asia, where they performed great American music in eleven different countries. Formerly known as the Upper Valley Duo, they always bring incredible passion, virtuosity, and excitement to all their programs. Get the YouTube link to this concert below!
Check out a video of the Duo performing Heifitz’s arrangement of tunes from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess:
