Thank you for your enthusiastic response; 100 free tickets have been reserved for WWNO listeners who registered for this “WWNO Night” offer.
Registrants may pick up their tickets at the WWNO table in the lobby of Dixon Hall before the performance. Please be ready to show identification if requested.
Even if you missed the complimentary tickets, don’t miss this remarkable performance! The Pacifica String Quartet, recently named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America, is the quartet-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and recipient of the 2009 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance. Canadian pianist Marc-André Hamelin is renowned for his fresh readings of the established repertoire and for his exploration of lesser-known works.
Information about the Pacifica String Quartet, Marc-André Hamelin, and the November 14 concert program is at the Friends of Music website.
Thursday’s performance includes works by Shostakovich, Leo Ornstein and Dvořák.
Parking space is scarce on the Tulane campus, so the Friends of Music provide a shuttle bus between Dixon Hall and Tulane’s Collins Diboll Garage. Information about the shuttle, parking and a campus map are available here.
