Salon Series offers concerts by young award-winning musicians from around the globe. Pianist William Hobbs, who has worked at many of the world's major opera houses in repertoire ranging from Handel to the European avant-garde, has devoted much of his time to work with young singers. He is currently Assistant Conductor under Sir Andrew Davis for Chicago Lyric Opera's production of Wagner’s Der Ring des Niebelungen. Hobbs will also be involved with the Seattle Opera production of The Ring and will debut as conductor with the Aspen Music Festival.
The concert will last approximately 75 minutes with one intermission. A delightful addition to the program will be a special piece from pre-eminent contemporary classical composer, Lowell Liebermann. Commissioned by Louis K. and Susan P. Meisel, Night Music, Op. 109 will feature Claire Temin Bird on Flute, Anna Temin Bird on Clarinet, and William Hobbs on Piano. Composer Lowell Liebermann will also be present.
