"The Most Exciting Chamber Music in the United States"
Musicians From Marlboro Sunday, April 16 in Sedona

For the finest classical music in Northern Arizona - maybe the Southwest - Chamber Music Sedona (formerly the Sedona Chamber Music Society) presents "Magical Music in the Red Rocks", Sunday, April 16, 2 p.m. featuring Musicians from Marlboro.

The concert, sponsored by local arts supporters Harry and Lelia Schoenberg, will take place at The Church of the Red Rocks, 54 Bowstring Drive in Sedona. Time Magazine described Musicians From Marlboro as "The most exciting chamber music in the United States" who bring to the concert stage many of the world's most cherished compositions. The Philadelphia Inquirer said, "It hardly matters what the program is or who the artists are. If it is a Musicians From Marlboro concert, the audience is assured of both a gilt-edged program and performance."

The 2 p.m.-matinee performance will include Three Miniatures, Op. 75A by Antonin Dvorak, String Quartet No. 2, Op. 17 by Bela Bartok, and the String Quintet in A Major, Op. 18 by Felix Mendelssohn. Performing artists include violinists Scott St. John and Soovin Kim, violists Naoko Shimizu and Baird Dodge and cellist Valerie Aimard.

Each artist has participated at the Marlboro Music Festival, which celebrates its 50th Anniversary in the year 2000. Musicians From Marlboro tours are noted not only for their joyous performances but also for offering valuable touring experience to artists at the beginning of their careers performing unusual chamber repertoire.

Since their inception, the Musicians From Marlboro tours have introduced such great talents as Richard Goode, Benita Valente, Murray Perahia, Jaime Laredo, Paula Robison and others. They have boasted other exceptional artists now heard in the Emerson, Guarneri and Juilliard Quartets, Beaux Arts and Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trios. In the words of the Washington Post, "Musicians From Marlboro is a virtual guarantee of musical excellence!"

Reserved seats for the concert are $25 and general admission $18. Student tickets are $5 available only at the door the day of the concert with student ID. Tickets may be purchased with a credit card by phoning the Society at 520.204.2415.
