Ensemble ACJW to return for fall residency

Oct. 12, 2015

The Arthur Zankel Music Center at Skidmore is marking its fifth year by welcoming several artists who performed during the venue’s inaugural season.

Ensemble ACJW presented the first performance at the Zankel Center’s Helen Filene Ladd Concert Hall in January 2010. The group returns for its fall residency in mid-October, with a public performance scheduled Friday, Oct. 16, at 8 p.m. A pre-concert talk begins at 7 p.m.

The program features “Marchenerzahlungen,” Op. 132, by Schumann; Piano Quintet, by Timo Andres; and Quintet for Clarinet and Strings in B Minor, Op. 115, by Brahms.

Admission is $8 adults, $5 seniors and Skidmore community, free for students and children. For tickets please visit the Arthur Zankel Music Center’s web site.

Members of this group are alumni or current fellows of The Academy, a two-year program that supports young professionals as they develop careers as top-quality performers, innovative programmers, and dedicated teachers who are engaged with the communities in which they live and work.  Every Skidmore residency includes several informal campus performances as well as engagements with area schools. This fall the group will visit Ballston Spa Middle School and Division Street Elementary School in Saratoga Springs.

Skidmore’s Department of Music and Office of the Dean of Special Programs present Ensemble ACJW, whose fall residency is made possible by the generous support of David and Beverly Sanders Payne ’59.
