Wadsworth Atheneum

1pm Gallery Talk – Reservation required, Meet in front of the Museum Shop | 2pm Concert – Enter through Avery Lobby

Members of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra present a concert of chamber music at the Wadsworth Atheneum in conjunction with the special exhibition Fired Up: Glass Today. Join curator Brandy Culp for a gallery talk before the concert highlighting the work of more than 50 glassmakers who are pushing boundaries and forging new paths in contemporary glass. $30; $25 for HSO subscribers and Wadsworth members. 

Arvo Pärt’s hypnotizing Fratres and beautifully simple Spiegel im Spiegel encapsulate the intricacy and purity of the glass works included in the Fired Up: Glass Today.  HSO 2022-2023 Joyce C. Willis Artist-in-Residence Quinn Mason’s sparkling 2 Fleeting Daydreams is self-described by the composer as “high velocity” and a set of “illuminations.”  Austrian composer Hans Gál’s Serenade Op. 93 is rooted in Western European music traditions, but features a playful nature, and Robert Schumann’s Phantasiestücke, Op. 88 is a sumptuous Romantic close to the program.   

Reservations are required for the gallery talk and tickets will be available at www.thewadsworth.org approximately one month in advance of the concert.      

Masks are encouraged, but not required during the concert. Visitors attending the gallery talk before the concert will be asked to wear a mask for the duration of the talk and will be asked to present their HSO Sunday Serenades ticket. Please check our website for current guidelines and safety requirements prior to your visit as guidelines may change: https://www.thewadsworth.org/visit/safetyguidelines/
