Sunday July 25, 2021, 4pm-6pm
Renowned classical musicians Toby Blumenthal and Bruce Williams, performing together as Duo Amici, are taking classical chamber music out of the concert hall and into mainstream venues with Classical Sound, a concert at Tiemann Art Gallery on Sunday, July 25, 2021, from 4pm – 6pm.
Chamber music is performed by small ensembles, with one musician per part, performed without a conductor. Because of its intimate nature, chamber music has been described as “the music of friends”.
Join us at Tiemann Art Gallery for this rare opportunity to see world-class musicians performing beautiful duets in a small setting surrounded by outstanding art. Classical Sound, the concert, will begin promptly at 4pm on Sunday, July 25, at 1706 N. Mays, Round Rock, Texas.
Come early and join us for a glass of wine! Stay late and visit with the musicians and gallery artists! Tickets available at the door for $45/ticket and for $40 and $35/ticket at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/classical-sound-concert-tickets-158445313197. Tickets limited to 50 people.
