Free Concert: Gershwin! With Thomas Pandolfi and Emil Altschuler at Russell Library

Violinist Emil Altschuler and Pianist Thomas Pandolfi 

Thursday, December 8 at 7:00pm, the Hubbard Room of the Russell Library will be filled with the music of George Gerschwin.  

In an evening resounding with the timeless classics of American master, George Gershwin, revel in the urbane elegance of 'An American in Paris.” Swoon over the aching simplicity of 'Embraceable You.” Marvel at the fascinating rhythms of 'Rhapsody in Blue.” The haze of Summertime and the unforgettable melodies of 'Porgy and Bess” will melt our wintery hearts. 

Acclaimed violinist Emil Altschuler is a master of his instrument who performs with incredible technique, magnificent expression and a profound artistry across a wide-ranging repertoire. American pianist Thomas Pandolfi is an exciting virtuoso who has been showered with superlatives by critics for his passionate artistry and amazing technique. Altschuler and Pandolfi have performed together at the Russell Library in previous years, to the satisfaction of audiences both young and old. 

This concert is funded by The Friends of the Russell Library, with proceeds from their book sales. Coincidentally, a Friends' Book Sale is scheduled for the weekend after this concert!
