Chamber Music in the Garden

How does a summer evening of beautiful music in a garden setting sound? If it sounds good, mark your calendars for Saturday, June 25, at 6 p.m., when acclaimed violin duo Marcolivia will be performing in the Memorial Garden at the James Monroe Museum. They will play music from Monroe’s era, such as a suite in E minor by French composer Jacques Aubert and arias from Mozart’s Magic Flute, and American popular pieces of the 19th and 20th centuries in honor of our presidents.

Marcolivia has been featured on NPR’s “Performance Today” and performs regularly at the Phillips Collection, the National Gallery of Art and the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage. They also tour and perform at music festivals throughout the U.S. and in Japan, Italy, Spain and England.

There will be a repeat of the concert on Sunday, June 26, at 3 p.m. UMW faculty and staff receive the reduced-price admission of $8. Contact (or x1123) with any questions!
