Apex Concerts: The Eighth Wonder
Apex Concerts, Nevada’s finest chamber music series, celebrates its eighth season with a grand rendition of the Eighth Wonder of the World: the glorious Octet for Strings and Winds by Franz Schubert. Also, a rarely performed gem of wit and color, the enchanting Prokofiev Quintet will serve the evening’s appetizer. Assembling on Nightingale stage will be an incredible cast of musicians from near and far. Led by multi-award winning violinist Sean Lee, and firmly grounded by the principal bassist of San Francisco Symphony Scott Pingel, the ensemble will also feature two new University faculty members: oboist Aaron Hill and clarinetist Joshua Anderson. Some familiar faces such as hornist DeAunn Davis, bassoonist Eric Fassbender, violist Dustin Budish and violinist Ruth Lenz will complete this dream team.
Tickets: $35; $5 for University students with valid ID; free for 17 and younger.
