Friday, May 19, 7:30 p.m.—RANDOLPH—On Friday, May 19, 25 young classical musicians from high schools and home-schools in 11 towns across Vermont and the Upper Valley will showcase their performing artistry in Chandler’s ninth annual NPR “From the Top” look-alike program, “The Next Generation.” The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at Chandler Music Hall in Randolph. There will be a reception to greet the artists following the performance.
For this concert, the area’s top music teachers recommend students whose accomplishments deserve special recognition, and this performance will feature those students who were selected after a competitive audition. Several of this season’s youth have performed in past “The Next Generation” performances.
On the program will be opera arias, a piano trio, a string quartet, a concerto for cello, a duo for flute and piano, works for solo piano and piano four hands, solo viola, solo violin, solo flute, and flamenco guitar. The composers represent a range from the early 1600s to the late 20th century and include Bach, Mozart, Schubert, Lalo, Brahms, Chopin, Debussy, Ravel, Fauré, Chaminade, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich, plus a few others.
Tickets are available at 802-728-6464 and online at chandler-arts.org. Advanced reserved seating tickets are $16 for adults and $10 for students.
Chandler Music Hall is located at 71-73 Main St., Randolph.
