This concert is the third in Goshen College’s new Rieth Chamber Series, committed to bringing high quality chamber and organ music to the Music Center’s performance halls, and is made possible in part by donations of this inaugural year’s season subscribers. Upcoming Rieth Chamber Series events include performances by organist Daniel Bayless (Feb. 9), early music ensemble Fleur de Lys (April 13), and Spektral Quartet with bandoneonist Julien Labro (May 17). More information about this series is available online at www.gcmusiccenter.org/concerts/riethseries.
