Behind the Curtain Series: Intimate Portraits . Strings Program

In the month of February, ACO Musicians invite you to immerse yourself in the timeless melodies and rich harmonies of Viennese master Franz Schubert and Czech master Bohuslav Martinů in this captivating all-strings program.


Join ACO musicians for a very special education program that breaks down the process of putting together a chamber concert. Held in January, February, and March, these sessions provide a unique learning experience of how these professionals prepare individually, and how they work together (without a conductor!) to bring some of the most beautiful music ever written to life. Each session includes a Q&A and ends with the performance of one piece from their entire program.

Seating is limited. Event is free of charge.

This Chautauqua South event is sponsored by the Friends of the Martin County Library System, Inc.

Music of Viennese master Franz Schubert and Czech master Bohuslav Martinů anchor this all-strings program. Schubert’s gift of melody and his distinctive harmonic sensibility have made him a favorite for almost two centuries. Martinů’s music is ever-changing, diverse, novel, and engaging. His Madrigals, written for our own Maestro Amado’s grandmother, is a show-stopping virtuoso work showcasing just how dynamic two string instruments can be.
