Free Concert at the Swedish American Museum, 5211 N. Clark Street
Co-sponsored by the Swedish American Museum and Audience Logic
Join us for a free kids' concert at the Swedish American Museum! If your little one plays violin, Rachel invites them to bring their instruments along to the concert where she'll lead them in "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." It is a great photo op and fun for all! Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling the store at 773-769-9299. Those with reservations will have priority entry to the concert.
Rachel Barton Pine's delightful new CD Violin Lullabies on Cedille Records (available
for purchase at the bookstore) is number one on this week's Billboard Classical
Chart! Recorded with pianist Matthew Hagle, Violin Lullabies features 25
lullabies by some of the world's greatest composers: Schubert, Fauré, Strauss,
Ravel; it also includes George Gershwin's "Summertime" and the famous
lullaby by Brahms. One reviewer said "It is not only the mastery of
Rachel's playing, but the sweet, rich voice of the Guarnari violin and the
charm of the chosen music that makes this album so wonderful."
