This is the third episode of our series, Coastal Classical Music, the voice of the Brookings-Harbor Friends of Music. Coastal Classic Music features the performers and music of upcoming Friends of Music Concerts.
In this edition, host George Cady focuses on the upcoming concert of February 7, 2016, to be given by the outstanding violinist Stephanie Chase and pianist Brian Connelly. The concert features works by Mozart, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, and others, and the wonderful melodies of the Brahms Sonata for Piano and Violin in A Major, opus 100, are featured in the program.
Both artists are coming to Brookings from Houston, TX, and we are indeed fortunate to have the opportunity to hear them.
We are privileged to have the opportunity to hear them perform this very impressive and important work here in Brookings.
