Da Camera concert series continues
California State University, Bakersfield's Musica da Camera concert series continues with "An Evening of Chamber Music," spotlighting works by Ludwig van Beethoven and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on Saturday, Oct. 28, at 8 p.m. in the Bakersfield Christian Life Center, 5500 Olive Drive.
The feature work for the second concert of the six-concert season is Beethoven's Septet in E-flat major, Opus 20. The ensemble consists of violin, viola, cello, string bass, clarinet, bassoon and horn.
"This is the music that enchanted Vienna in 1800," said CSUB music professor Gordon Mehling, Musica da Camera's music director and conductor. "Beethoven presented this work in the first concert of his music on April 2, 1800. It was immediately popular and remains so today."
Other works at the concert include Mozart's Oboe Quartet, featuring oboist Brett Clausen as soloist; and scenes from The Canterbury Tales, where flute and clarinet will be featured, along with soprano and harpsichord.
Advance tickets for the Oct. 28 concert are available at Russo's Books in The Marketplace shopping center, and will be available at the door the evening of the concert beginning at 7:30 p.m. Cost is $10 general admission, $7 for students and seniors, $3 for children under 10.
