Hog River Brewing Co.
1429 Park Street, Hartford
HSO: Intermix is intimate, inviting, and interactive! Get up close with HSO ensembles as they perform contemporary compositions and intriguing, rare, classical pieces. Enjoy cocktails, conversation, mingling, and more. And our November Intermix, Dark Wood, is at one of the most popular hangouts in Hartford – Hog River Brewing Co.
The program, led by Carolyn Kuan, features an innovative mix of contemporary and classical: a movement from Beethoven’s elegant Quintet in E-Flat, Jennifer Higdon’s interactive Smash, her reflective Summer Shimmers, and her intense Dark Wood, Bach’s Prelude and Fugue, selections from Brahms’ luscious Horn Trio, and Schuttenhelm’s layered Whirl (Thomas Schuttenhelm is a Connecticut resident).
This concert also delves into the connection between music and beer; Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms were all notably beer drinkers! The price of one beer (21+) is included in the ticket price.
HSO: Intermix is sponsored in part by the Greater Hartford Arts Council.
