“BROADWAY VIOLIN”

Great Broadway hits for violin and piano
Music by Gershwin, Arlen, Rodgers, Bernstein, & more

January 22, 2021

Join Classicopia for this very fun program exploring the history of Broadway songs from the 1920s to the 1980s.  Artistic Director and pianist Daniel Weiser will be joined by violinist Timothy Schwarz to perform some fantastic arrangements of your favorite Broadway songs by Gershwin, Rodgers, Sondheim, Bernstein, Webber and more including “Over the Rainbow,” “Send in the Clowns,” “Some Enchanted Evening,” and “Memory”.   Schwarz and Weiser were the 1996 U.S. Artistic Ambassadors which resulted in a two month tour of the Middle East and Southeast Asia, where they performed great American music in eleven different countries.  Formerly known as the Upper Valley Duo, they always bring incredible passion, virtuosity, and excitement to all their programs.  Get the YouTube link to this concert below!  If you can’t be there for the live premiere, the link will stay up afterwards as well so hope you can check it out!
