Colburn School's Lunchtime Concert Series Celebrates Beethoven
In October 2019, the Colburn School presented Beethoven 250, a six-day festival built around the composer's beloved string quartets, featuring performances by the Calidore String Quartet, one of the School's most notable alumni ensembles, and the Viano String Quartet, the School's Chamber Ensemble-in-Residence, as well as Conservatory students and faculty.
Held weekly and beginning Thursday, May 14, Colburn School will continue this celebration of Beethoven's 250th birthday with a weekly series of lunchtime concerts featuring complete performances from the Beethoven 250 festival, as well as live discussions that will unpack Beethoven's music.
All concerts will stream live on Colburn's Facebook page.
