KENNESAW, Ga.—The Kennesaw State University Premiere Series will bring the highly acclaimed Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center to the Performance Hall of the Dr. Bobbie Bailey & Family Performance Center on Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. The CMS is one of 12 constituents of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the largest performing arts complex in the world.
CMS is a collective of several of the world's finest chamber musicians. Now in its 41st season, CMS presents chamber music of every instrumentation, style and historical period. In addition to their extensive concert season in New York, they create touring programs, such as the one they will perform at Kennesaw State, and present them at concert halls around the nation. For the Kennesaw State concert, a CMS sextet will perform a colorful program of French wind music.
“This program features a wind quintet - flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn - along with a piano,” explains David Daly, director of the Bailey Performance Center and coordinator of the Premiere Series. "It is a unique collection of instruments that not many people have the opportunity to hear together in this setting."
Tickets for the concert are $25. Discounts are available for KSU personnel, seniors, military and groups. For more information, visit the KSU box office or call 770-423-6650.
